Revitalized by summer protests, Dallas’ inequity programs fight through pandemic’s ‘gut punch’
Now here is a cool piece about our nonprofit work in Dallas and Austin. It features our work here in Austin with Academia Cuauhtli and from Dallas, the All Stars Project, Inc. and Big Thought. I am so happy and inspired to see that others like ourselves are doing life-saving work in our communities. I quote my colleague, Dr. Joshua Childs, who states the following:
In addition to thinking of ourselves locally as part of the current Ethnic Studies movement, we also think of ourselves as a cultural and linguistic revitalization project that consists of community members, bilingual education and dual language teachers, students, parents, and elders, as well as our various partners, including the Austin Independent School District, the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Culture Center, the Indigenous Cultures Institute, the Austin Area Association for Bilingual Education, Grupo Xochipilli, a local kalpulli, and the Texas Center for Education Policy at the University of Texas at Austin.
You can go to this link to see some of whom are in our community. Thanks to Fernando Cervantes of the Dallas Morning News for featuring this work.
