Color Creates a Brighter Futre

Bucks County Author Fair

Last week, we were lucky enough to attend the Bucks County Local Author Fair at the Quakertown Library in PA. This was such a fun event, and we was able to meet so many local kids, other authors, and share and sell the books to raise money for LKHZ’s causes.

The kids were super excited by the books, crayons, and bookmarks, and we was also able to teach them the importance of giving back to others in your community. These books made great holiday gifts, and all of the copies will be going to great homes

It was so wonderful to be involved in such a great community event. Thank you Bucks County Libraries for having us and putting on this great time!IMG_2495 2.jpg

Immigrant Rights Speaker-3/28

 

thumbnail_image4.jpgOn Tuesday, 3/28, Rocio Vasquez from the Mexican Consulate of Philadelphia came to Bryn Mawr College to talk about her work at the consulate, what she does during the day, and how they are working to protect immigrants in the area. The consulate does amazing work with labor rights, family law, criminal law, and health services.

The event was a casual, conversational environment with a q/a session, and there was a large turnout including faculty and staff. The event will also be covered by the Bryn Mawr website.

We thank Rocio for coming and sharing her perspectives, and we look forward to getting involved with the Mexican consulate in the future to help promote human rights here and abroad.
