Featured Speakers

Friday Morning, Roberto Elizondo: 

Roberto has recently been named superintendent at Touchet School District in Walla Walla. He was a migrant worker for over 17 years, followed the migrant circuit in Washington State, and lost his brother to drugs and false hope. He knows the issues we are dealing with first hand – come learn from his critical perspective.




Saturday Morning, The Cuban Guy:

At the age of 16 he escaped from Cuba. He arrived to America not knowing a word of English, without his parents, without any money, and was even homeless for a while. How did he go from living his worst nightmare to living his dream? Join us to find out.

Visit his website for more information.
