LATA Board Report

At our November meeting, we discussed the following:

  • On-going work with the Latino Task Force
  • Partnership with the Mexican Consulate in San Francisco
  • Discussion groups with LATA members around combating anti-blackness
  • The Educators of Color event sponsored by SFUSD on November 12
  • Collaborating with the SF Alliance of Black School Educators - SFABSE to award a scholarship focused on Afro-Latinos
  • Finances (We have given $42,500 of scholarships! Six did not enroll yet, so we're saving the award for them till they do.)
  • Working with community groups to close the "camps"

Educator Recognition Form HERE
We did not get a suggestion from any of our members, so this is a friendly reminder to nominate someone.
We got great feedback about our recognition of Nancy Obregon! Please help us highlight someone else who is in education
(or has retired) and that you can help us honor.
