Opening Ceremony - Procession of Hope / Procesión de la Esperanza, Season 10 (2019)

This segment is date/time stamped: March 28, 2019; 9:00AM This episode is a syndicated replay from Season 10 of LEAD Summit 2019. The theme that year was “¡Su Voto Es Su Voz - Everyone Counts! For the U.S. to create a positive future, it will require a Latino citizenry that more greatly participates in the American democratic process, and that is poised to shape the U.S. political landscape through voting and civic engagement. Among the Featured Speakers that year was the Honorable Alex Padilla, who at the time was serving as the California Secretary of State, and had modernized the office, increased voter registration and participation, and strengthened voting rights. Padilla served as Grand Marshall helping kick off our LEAD Summit by leading the “Procession of Hope” with Cal State San Bernardino’s first 15 graduates of its educational doctorate program, 35 brand new U.S. citizens, and 24 Dreamers and undocumented youth. The inaugural procession was emotionally overwhelming and there was not a dry eye in the room. Procession of Hope: Welcome to the 10th year anniversary of our annual Latino Education and Advocacy Days Summit - LEAD. Who are we?: The broad spectrum of researchers, teaching professionals and educators, academics, scholars, administrators, independent writers and artists, policy and program specialists, students, parents, families, civic leaders, activists, and advocates.

Panel – “Unleashing the Giant: Voter Registration & Civic Engagement” Season 10 (2019)

The time is now for Latinos to unleash the giant, energized and empowered, and reflective of the growing diversity in the United States. It must begin with exercising our right to vote. We can only edge closer to true representations of our community when we use our vote as our voice, so our presence can not only be felt in the electorate, but public policies can better resemble and reflect the needs of our community. As educators, advocates and leaders we must all work together to engage the next wave of voters, Latinos or otherwise, so as to build a civic society and representative democracy inclusive of all our interests. The panelists will discuss efforts to promote the broader movement for social and economic justice through increased civic participation, working with community-based, educational, religious, labor, and other organizations seeking to build civically cognizant and active neighborhoods. Among the topics are increasing voter registration, the need for practical and targeted voter education, critical engagement and participation rates, and organizing and exposing Latino youth and community members to social change opportunities and long-lasting community power.   Introduction / Moderator: - Cecile Dahlquist, Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, Student Health Center-Palm Desert Campus, and Doctoral Candidate-Cohort 11, Educational Leadership Program, CSUSB Introduction / Moderator   Panelists: - Janet Bernabe, Riverside Regional Coordinator, Mi Familia Vota - Luz Gallegos, Community Programs Director, TODEC Legal Center - Francisco J.

Panel - "Latina Pathways in P-20 Systems and Beyond: Answering the Call" Season 9 (2018)

This panel will discuss the state of Latinas in education, including the challenges and opportunities for engaging and supporting Chicanas/Latinas across the P-20 education continuum and beyond. Within the broader Chicano/Latinx student group, Latinas comprise a greater proportion pursuing undergraduate degrees in the United States. Yet, Latinas still face challenges throughout the public education continuum, particularly in postsecondary contexts. This intergenerational panel will present a broad perspective of how the Latinx community may thrive across P-20 pathways by offering a more nuanced understanding of select elements that contribute to success, resilience, determination and an unwavering commitment to the Latinx comunidad. Besides an overview of the state of Chicana/Latina progress in P-20 systems and beyond, panelists will cover the role of mentorship and programs in undergraduate success, the plight of first-generation Latinas in postsecondary contexts, and moving beyond full scholarship, mentorship and legacy building.
