CONGRATULATIONS!!! Someone just graduated from Kindergarten in spiffy new clothes from Grassroot Givers. They just couldn't resist grabbing a few books on their way out the door.

An 8-year-old girl went through a growth spurt and had nothing that fit her anymore. Last week, her mom reached out to us to see if we could help. Three of our donors stepped forward to provide beautiful like-new and brand-new clothes for her. Another woman delivered the clothes to their home in Latham today. The little girl is having eye surgery this week and is thrilled to have all the new clothes. Her mom is thrilled too. Just another example of your generosity in action. We are so grateful!!

Eliminating racism & homophobia: Cuba’s achievements & challenges Prof. Tomás Fernández Robaina Wednesday May 8, 7PM Capital District Latinos 160 Central Avenue Albany, NY 12206 Please help spread the word about this event, 1) share this post widely 2) Visit the event page https://www.facebook.com/events/2287026614888984/ and invite your friends 3) While at the event page click on “Going” Cuba has gone beyond merely approving legislation banning discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation, or religion. It has implemented ambitious and innovative initiatives to CHANGE CULTURE regarding these and other forms of prejudice and discrimination. Some of these strategies include: the use of popular music, films, soap operas, public education campaigns in neighborhoods and factories, changing the curriculum to address sexism, homophobia and racism from elementary to college education, etc. There is much we can learn from Cuba, and we will have one such opportunity on Wednesday May 8 with Cuban scholar and activist Tomás Fernández Robaina. Prof. Tomás Fernández Robaina is one of Cuba’s most prominent scholars on Afro-Cuban and LGBTQI issues, having written 10 books and over 60 articles on these topics. He is a long-time researcher at Havana’s National Library, professor at the University of Havana, and a member of the Cuban Union of Artists and Writers, who figures prominently in many organizations in the forefront of the struggles to eliminate racism and homophobia in Cuba. Prof Fernández will speak frankly about their failures and successes. He will discuss provisions in Cuba’s new Constitution (just approved on February 24, 2019, by 90% of voters, with a turnout of 84%) that seek to eliminate racial disparities, as well as on the struggle to legalize same-sex marriage and prohibit all discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender. This event is open to all and is free of charge Light refreshments provided Sponsors: [email protected], Capital District Latinos Please help spread the word about this event, 1) share this post widely 2) Visit the event page https://www.facebook.com/events/2287026614888984/ and invite your friends 3) While at the event page click on “Going”
