LULAC National Scholarship Fund (LNSF):
Run completely at the local, grassroots level, the LNSF is coordinated nationally by LNESC. LULAC brings together local fund raising efforts with corporate partners to provide over $750,000.00 in scholarships to all levels of degree seeking students each year. One of the major contributors to LULAC was Cincinnati's P&G:


P&G's Scott Stewart and Ingrid Rivera donating a check for $100,000 to LULAC

This year LULAC is giving away 5 scholarships. The first three are the LNESC scholarships for local Tri-State students which are handled through the Cincinnati council of LULAC. Two are for $1,000 and one for $800. There is no GPA requirements for the LNESC scholarships because they are below $1,000. Since the deadline is April 30th, 2007, please fill this one out ASAP and send to: LULAC Cincinnati, 1431 Walnut St. Cincinnati, OH 45202.

The two others are the LULAC GM ($2,000) and LULAC GE ($5,000) scholarships - deadline for both: July 15, 2007.

 There is no greater cause to champion than providing a well-rounded, culturally diverse education to every child in Cincinnati.  Since April 2003, Children’s Day, “El Día de los Niños” has celebrated diversity in Cincinnati Public Schools.

While the festivities will span 4 days, we are expecting the highest number of participants during the event at the Cincinnati Zoo on Saturday. An estimated 600 children, along with their families and distinguished guests such as Cincinnati’s Mayor Mark Mallory are expected to participate on this day.

 This year’s theme is "We Are All Neighbors." With our main activity, "Passport to the Neighborhood," we will give each child a “passport” to be stamped at the stations represented by ethnic groups in Cincinnati including the following:  African American, Appalachian, Chinese, Ethiopian, German, Greek, Guatemalan, Indian, Irish, Korean, Mexican,  Peruvian, Senegalese.

 President Bill Clinton with MidwestLatino Founder, Michael Beck

 In a recent meeting with LULAC leaders commemorating the 78th anniversary of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) in Washington, D.C., former President Bill Clinton was advocating greater economic and financial education of Latinos in order to reduce dependancy on so-called "payday loans" and other access-to-cash programs, such as rapid tax refunds, that may cost Latinos interests ranging from 40 percent to 500 percent.

"The solution is preparing a budget, expanding access to alternatives," Mr. Clinton said. "I understand why this is happening. People need immediate access (to funds) for (financial) emergencies." He asked for LULAC's help in educating the community about budgeting and other economic issues.

Mr. Clinton was recognized by LULAC with a "Presidential Award" during the group's 10th annual National Legislative Award gala. The award is presented to those who "defend and promote" the Hispanic community in the United States.

MidwestLatino will be working with LULAC and local financial institutions to promote seminars and workshops focused on economic and financial education for Latinos/Hispanics. If you would like to be part of this effort, please contact us at info@midwestlatino.com

Edward James Olmos, Actor and Community activist, will be giving a speech at Wright State University (Student Union, Multipurpose Room) on Thursday, April 12th, 2007 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM.
 
This event is free and open to the general public. It is sponsored by:  Wright State University and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
 
An Emmy and Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated Mexican-American actor is best known for his roles of Admiral William Adama in the 2003 re-imaging of Battlestar Galactica, Lt. Martin Castillo in Miami Vice, and Jaime Escalante in Stand and Deliver.
 
Olmos has often become involved in social issues, especially those affecting the Hispanic-American community in the United States. In 1998 Olmos founded Latino Public Broadcasting and currently serves as its Chairman. The Latino Public Broadcasting funds programming for public television which focuses on issues affecting Hispanic-Americans and advocates for diverse perspectives in public television. Also, in 1998, Olmos starred in the uplifting and Latino movie The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit, that breaks stereotypes and transcends the normal stigmas of most Latino oriented movies. Olmos also makes frequent appearances at juvenile halls and detention centers to speak to teenagers at risk. He has also been an international ambassador for UNICEF. In 2001, he was arrested and spent 20 days in prison for taking part in the Navy-Vieques protests against United States Navy target practice bombings of the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico.

 The local Cincinnati chapter of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization focusing on protecting the civil rights of Tri-State Hispanics has launched the toll-free 1-877-77-LULAC   (1-877-775-8522)

The telephone number, available 24/day, was launched this month to compile complaints of discrimination and/or racial profiling.  Victims are encouraged to call whenever they’ve encountered discrimination on the basis of their race, color, gender, religion, or nationality.  It is LULAC’s hope to investigate and report these cases to local, state, and national authorities for further investigation and possible prosecution of those committing discrimination. 

   

Other media is also running stories about this new number - see The Spanish Journal, Cincinnati Enquirer and Nuestro Rincon

About  LULAC: The League of United Latin American Citizens, better know as LULAC (http://www.lulac.org/), the oldest and largest Hispanic membership organization in the country, advances the economic conditions, educational attainment, political influence, health and civil rights of Hispanic Americans through community-based programs operating at more than 700 LULAC councils nationwide.

SCREENWRITER TO SPEAK AT XAVIER UNIVERSITY ABOUT HIS LIFE DURING

EL SALVADOR’S CIVIL WAR

Movie “Voces Inocentes” is based on Oscar Torres’ life

 

Oscar Torres, screenwriter of the movie “Voces Inocentes (Innocent Voices)”, will speak at Xavier University on Wednesday, March 28 at 7:00 p.m. in Kelley Auditorium located in Alter Hall on the University campus.  There will be a viewing of the film followed by a lecture by Torres and a question and answer session. This event is free and open to the public.

 

“Voces Inocentes” portrays the writer’s life during the civil war in El Salvador in the 1980’s and the issues surrounding children soldiers. It recounts the story of a young boy who has a 12th birthday coming up. At age 12, he is eligible to be a child solider. The boy and his mother fight to keep him out of the war.

 

“When I first saw the movie “Voces Inocentes” in El Salvador during my academic service learning semester, I was very moved by the story of the country’s civil war told through the perspective of a child,” says Kari Huske, the chair of the event. “Although the subject of children being recruited into armies is not a serious threat in the United States, currently around 300,000 children are being recruited to fight in conflicts around the world.  We are bringing this event to campus to build awareness about these issues and the testimony by Oscar Torres will add a personal face to the struggle that many children are facing globally,”

 

The Student Activities Council, Lecture Series, Voices of Solidarity and the Intercultural Programming Funding Board are sponsoring this event.

 

As a Catholic, Jesuit University Xavier University is dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and to the orderly discussion of issues confronting society.
