19th Annual Latino Heritage Parade and jamaica to Receive Support From the Pasadena Latino Coalition
PASADENA – The Pasadena Latino Coalition (PLC) is proud to support the 19th annual Pasadena Latino Heritage Parade and jamaica by sponsoring the Children’s Educational Activities area.
“We are proud to be able to support activities that highlight Latino culture and heritage”, said Roberta H. Martínez, PLC Chair. “The parade and jamaica was established to honor our elders and to preserve our collective past. We are fortunate to be able to do so by supporting educational activities at the jamaica.”
PLC’s goal is to shine a light on the experiences of our community; with a focus on the disparity that too often exists in areas of education, employment, health and housing in the city of Pasadena.
The Pasadena Latino Coalition (PLC) was established in 2011. The PLC seeks social justice and fair representation for the Latino community. The members represent organizations that are either led by Latinas and Latinos, are established to provide service to the Latino community, or provide services to the general community but whose demographics reflect a predominance of Latino constituents. For real-time information and updates on what’s happening in the community follow us on Facebook and Twitter @Pasadena_Latino.
