The historic CPES Summit had close to 300 diverse participants
from throughout California and Arizona, launching a movement
to promote teaching, research and Ethnic Studies teacher
training for the next 5 years.

A full report on the summit will be published online by mid-

November with proceedings and workshops recommendations,
and the organizers have agreed to host 3-4 regional summits in
2015 to continue and expand the Campaign to Promote Ethnic
Studies at all levels of the educational system.

Most important, plan to attend the L.A. Unified School Board
meeting at 4pm on Tuesday, November 18 when the LAUSD
(333 S Beaudry Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90017) will vote to adopt
its own Ethnic Studies resolution, based on the El Rancho USD
historic policy adopted in June 2014.
