On October 4, 2014, ARE Los Angeles, MEChA de Maya Angelou, Union del Barrio, various Neighborhood Councils (Central Alameda, South Central, CANNDU, Voices of 90037), PAPEL, Mujeres Inmigrantes Organizadas, SCIC, etc. joined forces to support students’ dreams of going to college. The event was hosted by the Central Alameda Neighborhood Council.
“Too many High Schools in LAUSD, like Maya Angelou Community High, do not have college counselors to help our students go through the college app process, particularly in inner-city schools, so these different groups came together to offer a College Application Workshop for students in South Central LA.”
It was made possible by many individuals and groups who believe that every students has a right to a higher education! Big props to Martin Terrones, Adri Cabrera, Natali Cabrera, David Sotero Solis, Kelly Flores, Revo Grafia, Paul A. Hernandez, Jthagreat DeFrance, Felicia Gomez Verdin and everyone else who helped out!
