PROUDLY SERVING THE PEOPLE OF STANISLAUS COUNTY SINCE 1997
Dear LCR Members, Friends, Supporters:
With 2018 coming in fast, accompanied by midterm elections, it time we regroup and ensure we have a say in who will represent our community! 2017 has been a challenging year for the Latino Community Roundtable (LCR). However, our Latino community leaders and neighbors are resilient, and we intend to keep LCR strong and active; we need your support and initiative to do so.
On behalf of the LCR Board of Directors, I regret to inform you that we recently received a letter of resignation from Rebecca Harrington, LCR President. We wish her the best in her future endeavors and thank her for her hard work and leadership.
LCR MONTHLY MEETINGS:
Meetings will continue to be on the Second Thursday of each month at the discretion of the Board to change dates.
17th ANNUAL CESAR CHAVEZ SI SE PUEDE EMPOWERMENT LUNCHEON:
The Board has been working on this fundraiser for several weeks now. We are taking Bids for a large venue that is available during lunch with a reasonably priced menu. Also, this year our goal is to invite the high school students again and the junior high students from Cesar Chavez Junior High School in Ceres. We have also decided to honor a member or former member of our community as the recipient of the Cesar Chavez Legacy Award. In addition, we have already begun to search for a speaker that can address the following issues that impact our community:
• Immigration Impacting California such as Sanctuary Cities and DACA Students
• Social Justice
• Environmental Justice
I want to personally take this time to thank you for your continued support to LCR. Next year will be a busy year for LCR. We will return to Political issues and especially set up a Legislative Committee and endorse the candidates or Measures on the Ballot that we feel will serve our community in our best interest. Next year, there will be national, state, and local elections. If you are interested in getting involved in issues that affect our community, LCR has opportunities for you to get involved.
On behalf of LCR, we wish you the best for this year.
