Gilda Ochoa, Pomona professor of Chicana/o-Latina/o studies at Pomona College and author of "Becoming Neighbors in a Mexican American Community," will talk about immigration and community organizing in the context of the LA County community of La Puente. This case-study approach would allow for an increased awareness of the history of inequality in this predominately Latina/o community, the struggles surrounding immigration and intra-ethnic relationships, and the current organizing for sanctuary in the city and the school district. This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps College Office of Public Events and Community Programs.
