Rosalio Muñoz’s talk is part of this year’s theme for the LEAD Summit revisiting and commemorating social movements from the last 50 years, including the birth of Chicano-ethnic studies, the school walkouts/blowouts, bilingual education and the Chicano Moratorium.
Registration for LEAD XI, “Movimiento y Compromiso: 50 Years of Challenges, Possibilities, and the Quest for Educational Equity,” set for Sept. 30 at CSUSB’s Santos Manuel Student Union North, can now be done online. The summit is open to the public and registration is free.
As an HSI, the university actively opens the doors to opportunity, provides more accessible support and resources, and ultimately supplies students the tools needed for successful careers and fulfilling futures.
The LEAD Summit XI and its related events have been postponed to September and will become part of the CSUSB Hispanic Heritage Month series of events.
Cheech Marin, the honorary chair/padrino de honor, is the morning featured speaker, and Rosalío Muñoz, chiefly remembered as the co-chair of the Chicano Moratorium Committee, will speak in the afternoon. The summit will take place on March 26.
The theme for the 11th annual summit is “Movimiento y Compromiso: 50 Years of Challenges, Possibilities, and the Quest for Educational Equity.” The summit is set for March 26, and online registration is now open.
A Hispanic Heritage Month look-back: The annual Latino Education and Advocacy Days Summit focused on “¡Su Voto Es Su Voz!” Everyone Counts.
The theme for this year’s summit, “¡Viva La Mujer!,” honors women and the positive impact they have made. Honorary chairs for 2018 are longtime community leaders Gloria Macías Harrison and Marta Macías Brown.
