Tuesday Noon: Gilda Ochoa: Where the Past Meets the Present: Latina/o Migration, Roots, and Resistance in L.A. County

October 3, 2017 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm
Scripps Presents
(909) 607-8508

Gilda Ochoa, Pomona professor of sociology and 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 Humanities Institute.
