Profesor de USD Estrena Documental Sobre la Historia y Orígenes de “Low-Riding”

El Director de Estudios Étnicos de la Universidad de San Diego, Alberto López Pulido, estrena su documental Todo Surge de las Calles (Everything Comes from the Streets) el domingo, 21 de abril, a las 3 pm, en la Escuela Secundaria Sweetwater.

Todo Surge de las Calles establece un punto de vista alternativo acerca de la Escena Lowrider en California, que tradicionalmente ha sido do-minada por la imaginaría de Los Angeles. El documental resalta la influencia de los “Clubs de Chaquetas” y los Modificadores de Coches de los 1950s, la Frontera entre EE.UU. y México, las Mujeres, y el movimiento Chicano en San Diego que luchó por la creación del Parque Chicano en 1970. Todos estos aspectos se unieron para crear una herencia Chicana singular de San Diego.

Todo Surge de las Calles está financiada por Cal Humanities, El Departamento de Estudios Étnicos de la Universidad de San Diego, y Via Internacional.

Este evento es gratis y abierto al público, cada persona que desea asistir debe inscribirse en Habrá una exposición de Lowriders.

April 19, 2013 Workshop to Educate Small Business Community on New Health Care Law

The Cámara de Negocios Mexico Americana (Canemexa), in conjunction with the National City Chamber of Commerce and the San Diego County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will host a workshop to help small business owners and the self-employed learn what the health care law means for their business and what steps are needed for compliance.

While many of San Diego’s south bay small business owners have heard about the Affordable Care Act (ACA), most lack a full understanding of what it actually means for their business and how it will impact them and their employees. Because small businesses are the backbone of the economy, we must move beyond the political rhetoric so that employers are provided with accurate information to make informed decisions about their health coverage.

WHEN: 11:30am-1:30pm on Friday, April 19, 2013
WHERE: Buster’s Beach House, 740 Marina Bay Dr., National City, CA 91950.
