Washington, D.C. - This week, LULAC and Univision announced their joint effort to bring the Latino community critical information and resources on the impact of Common Core State Standards, how to choose a college, and financial aid resources.
As part of this new partnership, LULAC’s over 135,000 volunteer members and the LULAC National Education Service Centers will be critical in ensuring that the information and resources available on Univision's "Es El Momento" website, www.eselmomento.com, are made available to Latino families through LULAC's advocacy and programming.
To kick off the partnership, Univision anchor, Teresa Rodriguez, will lead a one-hour segment on Common Core State Standards. The segment will be broadcasted nationally on August 24 across the Univision network. The segment will also feature teachers, parents, and community advocates discussing how Common Core State Standards has impacted their lives and the key role it will play to ensure that their child graduates high school college and career ready.
With the help of its vast volunteer membership, LULAC will host Watch Parties in Albuquerque, New Mexico and in Miami, Florida.
