Sept. 25, 2020: DALA Latinx Student and Staff Bienvenida
We will welcome new students, introduce staff and connect you to college life and student services. There will be giveaways, an opportunity to meet and mingle, as well as hear from continuing Latinx students on ways to become involved on campus.
Student resources will be shared, and you’ll have an opportunity to make new friends, network with faculty, staff, and students and more importantly build comunidad (community) to support your success!
Oct. 1, 2020: The Latinx Vote in 2020
- One decision can change the future!
Learn how you can make a difference. Join us for an informative discussion on the upcoming election with Andres Quintero, Evergreen Valley College political science professor and Alum Rock School District board member, along with De Anza student leaders and other guests.
Oct. 16, 2020: Dia de la Raza
- Working toward ending anti-indigeneity and anti-Blackness in the Latinx comunidad
Join this roundtable Zoom discussion on experiences about race and color within Latinx communities. We will reflect on what love and familia mean to us in a culture of white supremacy, anti-indigenousness and anti-blackness.
How do we raise our consciousness to better understand and embrace our multiracialized bodies, truly love all our colores and stand against racism?
Oct. 19, 2020: We Are More Than Tragic Stories
This event is part of De Anza's Undocumented Student Week of Action, Oct. 19-23
- What if instead of stories of the deficit, we told stories of strength?
Meet Yosimar Reyes, a nationally acclaimed undocumented American poet, public speaker and activist, who was born in Guerrero, Mexico and raised in East San José, California.
This keynote and writing workshop is aimed at exploring and uplifting our power. We are more than tragic stories.
Raza Action Month events are co-sponsored by the De Anza Latinx Association, Office of the Vice President of Instruction, Office of the Vice President of Student Services, Equity and Engagement Division, International and Intercultural Studies Division, Euphrat Museum of Art and Office of College Life.
