Bridging The Gap 2019-2020
Shayla Rodriguez will be offering educational workshops called “Bridging the Gap.” These workshops are for residents every 2nd Wednesday of each month. Our first meeting is February 13th, 2019. The workshops will be hosted in Hoyt Smith Recreation Center conference room from 6:30 pm to 7:15 pm. The purpose of the workshops is to discuss strategies to help Latinos develop and promote involvement and empowerment of people with the purpose of creating safer, healthier, and more educated communities. Additionally, to present a variety of civic engagement strategies for community residents to pursue, along with an analysis of effectiveness based on civil rights history and the breakage of the language barrier and isolation. The workshops have no cost.
