Join us in uniting teachers, students, and organizations around an effort to expand Raza and ethnic studies in LA High Schools. This conference will include panels on Raza Studies High School Instructors, Tucson Raza Studies Curriculum & Pedagogy featuring (UA) Social Justice and Education Project and (UA) UNIDOS students and Tucson (UA and TUSD) MAS Teachers (who will be present), Banned Books, Occupied America (author, Rodolfo Acuña will also be present), and Dreamers & Raza Studies.

The conference is in support of Tucson's Mexican American studies department that was dismantled earlier this year. But it will also celebrate Santa Monica High School's recent adoption of Ethnic Studies into its curriculum.

Following the conference at SMC, there will be a Banned Book Exhibit at the nearby Pico Youth and Family Center 715 Pico Boulevard in Santa Monica, CA 90405 (310) 396-7101 at 5 pm.
This will be in conjunction with the presentation of the video docu-drama by UNIDOS titled: Banned! Burritos will be served.
