Free Workshops for Bilingual Parents in California

In February, Californians Together will be hosting two free workshops for Spanish-speaking parents, community members, and parent organizers of English learners. The workshops are part of a campaign, Alas y Voz, which aims to support parents in choosing biliteracy programs for their children. In the workshop, participants will:

  • discuss the benefits of bilingualism and biliteracy
  • learn more about their rights to ask for new programs in their community
  • learn how to share resources and tools of the Alas y Voz campaign to communicate with parents and others in their schools and communities
  • practice telling their stories to promote the campaign
