          from Tyler Hart Added 199 0 0

          My class had to act out their own scene of an important event that happened in Cesar Chavez's life using a variation of the French Art Form of Tableau. The students had to choose their scene, come up with characters for the scene, and come up with dialog that each of them would say. I'd say they did a pretty good job for the first time! Is there a different scene in Cesar’s life that you would want to act out?

                  from New America Media Added 6,603 6 0

                  By: Josué Rojas and Walter Lopez Pocho One is the child of two organizers and was raised in the Northern California Farm Worker's movement. As an image-maker and educator, Pocho is active, always with his camera in hand and his objective in mind. Wikipedia describes the word "Pocho" ("Pocha" fem.) as "a pejorative term used by native-born Mexicans to describe Chicanos who are perceived to have forgotten or rejected their Mexican heritage to some degree." Another entry describes a Pocho as "A person who frequently crosses the U.S.-Mexican border and feels at home on both sides of the border." Pocho uno has his own definition, he embraces his roots, and more importantly his place in the history of a movement. "What would the Chicano movement be without art?" Pocho asks. Enjoy

                    This Reflection on Public Presentations and Performances was shown at the Vermont State House on May 13th by Alice Leeds as part of the award ceremony for receiving the 2010 Governor’s Heritage Award for Outstanding Educator. The Governor’s Heritage Award Program was established by the Vermont Folklife Center and Vermont Life Magazine to recognize exemplary Vermonters whose work as artists or educators perpetuates the mix of cultural traditions that make up Vermont’s distinctive cultural heritage. Alice Leeds of Bristol, this year’s recipient of the Outstanding Educator Award, is a fifth/sixth grade teacher at the Lincoln Community School in Lincoln. As colleague Nancy McClaran observes, “Alice uses place-based teaching to root students in their immediate surroundings by engaging their hearts and minds.” In 2008, Alice and her teaching partner, Donna Wood, undertook a three-month historical study of Franco American culture and child millworkers in Vermont; their 2010 study focused on Vermont dairy farmers and Mexican farm workers, with a special emphasis on Addison County.

                      from Migration Policy Institute Added 49 0 0

                      Plenary Session III: Effective immigration policies serve to encourage and support the integration of newcomers and facilitate the attainment of citizenship. Nowhere is this better understood than at the community level, where immigrants interact daily with the broader community. Many organizations and individuals are involved in helping newcomers acclimate and move toward full participation within their adopted communities. Current immigration policies, however, often stymie these efforts. There are significant backlogs for immigrants wanting to adjust their immigration status, including for naturalization. Increasingly, state and local elected officials are adopting harsh measures affecting the immigrant communities, driving many, especially the unauthorized, further underground. And, because current immigration policies have not addressed the large population of unauthorized immigrants in the United States, large segments of the immigrant community have no recourse to status adjustment, which is a critical component to integration. This panel will explore how community organizations can and are helping to prepare immigrants to become citizens and full participants in the community. The audience will learn about practical approaches, as well as recommended policy changes, from the perspectives of those engaged with immigrant communities. Efforts, both underway and proposed, to build the case for comprehensive immigration reform and to help prepare immigrants for eventual opportunities to adjust their immigration status will be examined. Session Moderator: Mark Franken, Executive Director, Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. Session Speakers: Josh Bernstein, Director of Immigration, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Angelica Salas, Director, Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) Diana Tellefson, Executive Director, United Farm Workers Foundation, Southern California For more information, visit http://contact.migrationpolicy.org/LAPC_2009
