Community : President Clinton calls for greater economic education
Posted by admin on 2007/3/25 16:20:00 (2622 reads)

 

 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.

Community : 1-877-77-LULAC - Combating Discrimination and Racial Profiling
Posted by admin on 2007/3/25 9:20:00 (1544 reads)

 

 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.
