The Outreach Subcommittee focus is on contacting local schools, colleges, health organizations, civil rights groups and other groups for the purpose to ask for their sponsorship and financial donations. In addition we are inviting these groups to send a representative to join us at our meetings and participate in our cause.
We are the daughters and sons of working people, standing up in our unions and organizing for our future, by taking steps to commemorate a 50th anniversary through social and political action. Our Labor Committee will reach out to all peace loving people, through our labor organizations and councils, to seek endorsements, leadership activist, and financial support for a truly representative action on August 29, 2020 in L.A."
The Finance Committee keeps track of all expenses and donations received to our checking account. Prepare a monthly financial report. Review and pay expenses approved by the Steering Committee over $300. We also will develop a budget. Collect for deposit all donations received at fundraisers and donations given at monthly public general meetings. Propose fundraising events.
The Education/Arts subcommittee was formed to support the Visual and Performing Art of the 50th Chicano Moratorium commemoration. This group of educators and teaching artists will be providing Discovery Guides and Lesson Plans to ensure that visitors, especially youth, can get a thorough background and context of the history that is being commemorated. The visual and performing art will be on display at the Autry Museum August 2020, at the Plaza de Cultura y Arte from August 2020 to March 2021, and beyond.
Grassroots/Social Media Committee:
The Grassroots/Social Media subcommittee is projecting the 50th Chicano Moratorium Anniversary on Social Media and fusing it with grassroots organizing. We meet every 1st Sunday of every month at 4:00 pm at Senor Fish in South Pasadena.
Education & History Committee:
In our vision, the Education and History Committee is responsible for creating educational lesson plans, gather items such as primary and secondary sources for current and future educators in grade levels K-14, along with the responsibility to preserve and protect history. In addition, with this objectives educators will be facilitated lesson plans, power points and films that will aid them in educating our youth with the 1960's movement that unfortunately has been left out from our academia. Furthermore, our committee will conduct programs necessary to educate citizens on the history of this area and to encourage participation. The Education and History Committee is also looking for educators that are interested in serving on the committee. If you want to help preserve our history and like doing research, this is the committee for you.
