In November, we made history in Los Angeles. After months of organizing, we were able to get the LAUSD Board of Education to make Ethnic Studies a requirement for high school graduation. It was a wonderful victory for our community but the real work is still to come and this is why we need YOUR help!

LAUSD voted to implement Ethnic Studies courses at 25 high schools next year as part of a pilot program and at ALL LAUSD high schools by 2019. This summit is meant to bring students together from as many different LAUSD high schools as possible to create a plan to demand Ethnic Studies courses at each campus. We cannot just sit back and wait on LAUSD to deliver these courses; we must demand them so that our campuses get the courses as soon as possible.

We call on all LAUSD high school teachers to bring students from your campus to this summit so that your students can connect with other students to advance this movement. Our objective is to create a strong demand from the students across the district. This will pressure the district to provide the resources necessary to implement these courses as soon as possible.

Let's keep up the organizing! Let's grow the momentum to insure that Ethnic Studies in Los Angeles is a major success so that it serves the interests of our communities and so that it becomes a model for the rest of the nation to follow! Please help us to spread the word about this summit!

Info on speakers, workshops...etc will be released

This event is being organized by Union del Barrio and MEChA de Santee but we aim for it to be a collaboration between as many organizations as possible.

    To be true is to be free from stupidity, ignorance, lies, confusion, personal and relationship problems, from what is false such as the ego, false pursuits and false values, it is to be free from all lies because one understands oneself and one understands life. For me it required living the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti and when I did so I went to heaven because I lived and died for love and truth, a complete dedication and submission, I questioned until I was free from time, from thought, from the known, from the past, from the temporary, , from what limits, what traps. I got to experience another dimension and that dimension is sacred, for the pure, and it is a timeless dimension and I call it Heaven. Kenny J ~ In him shall true hearts everywhere their high communion find, His service is the golden cord close-binding all mankind. ~John Oxenham " Real freedom is not something to be acquired, it is the outcome of intelligence. Freedom comes when you understand and break away from all stupidity. " Jiddu Krishnamurti " The house is burning and the only hope for mankind is in the transformation of the individual. " Jiddu Krishnamurti I suggest to people the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti and not to waste time with less because life is very serious. Only the true are free, only the true live life fully. To live the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti is to go to Heaven, it means being true and eliminating all that is false, it means to be forever creative and young.
