In July, the California Department of Education and State Supt. Tony Thurmond presented a month long series dedicated to Ethnic Studies. Among the guest speakers were Assemblymember Dr. Shirley Weber, Dolores Huerta, Karen Korematsu, Assemblymember Jose Medina and Assemblymember James Ramos. Puente Board Member, Cindy Quiralte, hosted the discussions.
We were so happy and proud to see Puente students from Desert Mirage High School share their reflections and engage with Ms. Dolores Huerta during the Q&A about her experiences, activism and advice.
Thank you CDE for organizing this!
