What a night! The 1st Anniversary of having our Havana Nights in the new Havana Martini Club couldn't be better.

The performance by our special Guest - Legend Vega (click here for more of her music) was awesome!

But the biggest surprise of the evening was when our weekly Merengue/Salsa class was joined by dancers from Justin Timberlake and Pink's "FutureSex/LoveShow", who are performing in Cincinnati tomorrow. Well, teaching somebody like Denosh Bennett or Hip-hop master Ava Bernstine Latin dancing was a real thrill. All the dancers were extremely cool and nice, and we hope they had a good time in Havana Martini Club.

Make This DREAM a Reality!!!

Analysts Agree. Bipartisan Support Steers Best Opportunity for DREAM Act's Passage 

On March 6th 2007, Senators Richard Durbin (D-IL), Chuck Hagel (R-NE), and Richard Lugar (R-IN) reintroduced the American DREAM Act, S. 774.  Its introduction comes just two weeks after the House’s introduction of HR 1275 sponsored by Lincoln Diaz Balart (R-FL), Howard Berman (D-CA), and Royal Allard D-CA). Bicameral leadership and Bipartisanship indicate a clear collaboration for the bill.      

LULAC strongly urges an immediate passage. Each year 65,000 promising high school students are denied access to higher education.  Without legal status, their doors are immediately closed, despite having lived the majority of their life in the United States, learned English, volunteered in their communities, and successfully graduated from high school.      

The DREAM Act can help these displaced students - who are without documentation - contribute to the national economy and continue their professional careers through higher education. 

This is a plea for you to act by urging your congressman and senators to move this legislation forward and champion its passage in this session. Visit this link to take action!

It’s not just a DREAM anymore.  It is a reality.  Express your support now.   

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is the oldest and largest Hispanic civil rights organization in the United States. LULAC advances the economic condition, educational attainment, political influence, health and civil rights of Hispanic Americans through community-based programs operating at more than 700 LULAC councils nationwide.

Head Start Kids

 
Federal Head Start Inclusion Regulations require local programs to include some aspect of culture for every demographic represented in the program.  Toyota is helping CAA's Head Start program to meet this goal by providing a $5,000 grant to help diversify the curriculum.
 
The funding will allow five classrooms in two differenct locations to study the Spanish language and Latino culture.  The benefits of such an education are two-fold.  For the Spanish speaking preschoolers, it will provide an opportunity for them to learn more about their native culture and to experience the joys of inclusion.  For the non-Spanish speaking children, research shows that children who study a foreign language in preschool or elementary school have a higher level of sucess in their other studies, particularly English and Math.  Please call 513.569.1840 x 1425 for more information.

Rosie Perez, nominated for Academy and Emmy awards for her acting and choreography, and who recently directed her first documentary, will speak on campus for Women’s History Month Monday, March 5, at 7 p.m. in the Millett Hall Atrium. Her new documentary, ¡Yo Soy Boricua, pa’ que tu lo sepas! (I’m Puerto Rican, Just So You Know!), will be shown twice on March 5: at noon in 162 Millett and at 5 p.m. in the Millett Hall Lobby.

Perez began her career as a choreographer for such artists as Bobby Brown, LL Cool J and Diana Ross. She choreographed and directed the “Fly Girls” on television’s In Living Color, for which she received an Emmy nomination.

Perez’s film credits include starring in Fearless with Jeff Bridges, for which she received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations. She also starred in Riding in Cars with Boys with Drew Barrymore and Human Nature with Tim Robbins and Patricia Arquette. Other films credits include Do the Right Thing, White Men Can’t Jump and It Could Happen to You.

On stage, Perez debuted in The Vagina Monologues in New York. She also appeared in Reckless, Frankie and Johnnie in Clair de Lune and the L.A. Philharmonic’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

¡Yo Soy Boricua, pa’ que tu lo sepas! (I’m Puerto Rican, Just So You Know!) chronicles the ethnic pride of Puerto Ricans and explores the political and cultural history between the United States and Puerto Rico. Filmed on location in New York City, it features footage from the 2004 Puerto Rican Day parade.

Throughout her career, Perez has advocated for many causes, especially those related to AIDS and inner city youth. She has received awards from the AIDS Action Foundation, Gay Men’s Health Crisis and the Latino Commission on AIDS. She is also active with the Working Playground, an arts education organization that brings the arts to students in Harlem, the Bronx and the lower east side of Manhattan.
