Fuerza Latina Helps to Keep Schools Open!

Back in January, 2011, Fuerza Latina and FCCAN helped form the Coalition to Save our Neighborhood Schools. We formed a campaign to keep Lincoln, Irish, Putnam, Lopez, and Beattie open. We were successful.

In April, 2013, Cheryl Distaso presented information about the campaign at the White Privilege Conference in Seattle.
