Precious Knowledge: Sept 22

You are invited to our M.E.Ch.A. event. M.E.Ch.A. along with AS will be showing the documentary Precious Knowledge this Tuesday September 22nd from 2:30-5p.m. in MS162. We will be having Rene Zambrano as our guest speaker. Here's a little bit about Zambrano and what he does: 

"Rene Zambrano is a member of the Association of Raza Educators (A.R.E) chapter and a teacher at Bell Middle School. The Association of Raza Educators (ARE) was established to uphold the rights and liberties of the Raza community. Education is essential to the preservation of civil and human rights. It provides the foundation for all political and economic progress and it must be a basic right of all people. Making this right a reality is the fundamental objective of ARE. Raza has been and continues to be oppressed by the educational system within the United States.Therefore, we are obligated to ensure that education serves as a tool for the liberation of our community.  He is also a M.E.Ch.A Alumni from San Diego State University and is currently part of the San Diego Unified School District Ethnic Studies Now movement to make ethnic studies a high school a graduation requirement."
