Engaging Latine Community Members

More than one in three Californians identified as Hispanic or Latino in the 2020 census; nearly 16 million Latine residents contribute to the power and vibrancy of communities across the state. At the April 2 All Call, panelists Jessica Lopez (Executive Director, The PAW Mission), Miguel Ruelas (Co-Founder, Patitas y Palabras Translation Services), and Suliana Lutin (Managing Attorney, Lutin Law Group, and Founder, Casa Sulis Animal Society, Inc.) will discuss how we can partner with current and potential Latine pet owners, community cat caregivers, fosters, and volunteers, to bring and keep more pets and people together and out of shelters.

Join the call to solve for barriers, language and otherwise, in our own processes that can exclude and harm Latine community members, including folks who are undocumented. Through this conversation, we'll identify the basics of culturally responsive materials and engagement so that we can build from the compassion, leadership, and creativity that already exists in our communities!

About the Cal For All Animals: All Call
The All Call is a twice-monthly, California community call for animal well-being professionals. The one-hour call is a dedicated space to share and learn from each other. Popular topics include initiatives that create a more inclusive culture for both staff and community, programs that keep pets with their people, industry trends, research studies, as well as the hard stuff, like what's not working or what is particularly difficult during times of scarcity. The call is a mix of presentations, storytelling, open discussion, and Q&A time. 

The All Call is hosted by California for All co-leaders @Allison Cardona and @Nadia Oseguera-Ramon and is enriched by rotating facilitators. You only need to register one time. Calls are sometimes recorded; recap emails with supplemental resources are sent post-call.
