    K12NN: Tony Diaz (Librotraficante) & 9th Circuit Ct on Mexican American Studies

    in Politics Progressive

    If you can't banish people outright, then you can try to erase them from students' minds. That's exactly what happened in Tucson Unified School District in Arizona, when conservatives ipassed an anti-immigrant racial profiling law, SB1070 that in effect targeted Latinos. At the same time, right-wing activists succeeded in passing a law banning the teeaching of Mexican American Studies, saying that a highly successful TUSD program that taught Chicano/Latiino history and culture to all students in the largely Hispanic district was instead harmful and divisive. The law, HB 2281, bans instruction that encourages "ethnic solidarity" among other things. Mind you, to begin with the ethnic studies courses were part of a federal court order to address historic and systemic racism in Arizona's education system.


    The outrage over free speech rights of teachers and students is what prompted writer and teacher Tony Diaz to "smuggle" books by Latino authors out of his home state of Texas and into Arizona. He has been reporting on and organizing the efforts of free speech activists, ethnic studies activists, and students and teachers fighting for a relevant curriculum ever since.


    TUSD high school student Maya Arce is a plaintiff who filed in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to overtun this Arizona law on grounds that it's unconstitutional. On January 12, 2015, she will testify and urge the Ninth Circuit to protect her First Amendment rights and the rights of other Arizona students and overturn this ignorant, bigoted, and narrow-minded law.


    Background, go here.

    Al Diaz, Tracee Gluhaich Rewrite Your Story With Passion and Purpose

    in Lifestyle

    Al Diaz and co-host Tracee Gluhaich share their insights on Rewrite Your Story With Passion and Purpose.


    Wednesday, March 25th  10am PST


    Tracee Gluhaich is a Health Coach and Personal Trainer. She and her hubby of 25 years, live on a certified organic farm in California, with her 3 sons (when they aren't off at college). She enjoys boot camp, mountain biking, hiking, and yoga! Based on her experiences with health coaching, she wrote a book called No Fricken Weigh! 21 days to ditch the diet, crowd out the crap, and love yourself to health.


    With the current state of health in our country and the continuous rise in obesity, everyone is looking for that quick fix of diet or surgery. Since there are over 100,000 books on dieting, it’s obvious that they simply don’t work. People are looking for that quick fix, temporary solution to a life long problem. They will only work when a commitment is made to a lifestyle change. A marathon versus a sprint.



    Ditch the Diet – no more deprivation and wanting to chew your arm off. Stop thinking short term, watching the scale, and dreading your daily exercise.
    Crowd Out the Crap – Fill your body with lots of delicious foods that will give you energy and make you feel great.
    Love Yourself to Health – Focus on nourishing self care, then food will not be such a crutch.


    Tracee's services,for individuals or groups, include:



    health counseling
    personal training
