COVID-19 has presented challenges to students and families across Washington state. And although every community faces similar issues, the pandemic has uniquely impacted some communities. To learn more and provide support, League of Education Voters believes in outreach to the Latino community in a culturally and linguistically appropriate way.
In our free webinar Thursday, December 10, we have assembled a statewide panel of Latino thought leaders, community leaders, and educators to share their perspectives on current events and what works to effectively educate Latino students. Our panelists currently include Estella Ortega, Executive Director of El Centro de la Raza; Maria Esther Zamora, English Language Development teacher at Spokane Virtual Academy; Superintendent Robert Elizondo of the Touchet School District; Suzy Diaz, Director of Collective Impact at Heritage University and convener of Yakima Valley Partners for Education; and additional guests to be announced soon. This webinar will be presented in Spanish with English interpretation available.
Moderated by League of Education Voters Director of Field and Community Engagement Eric Holzapfel and Communications Director Arik Korman.
