Fundraiser was just over halfway to its goal as of Wednesday morning

– Susana Lopez, Class of 2001, was a “Mechista” MEChA member at Paso Robles High School and now one of the co-chairs of the Paso Diversity Equality and Inclusion Education Committee. She recently launched a GoFundMe to raise funds in support of the high school’s ACT (Activist Coalition of Tomorrow) and MEChA ( Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán) clubs to help bring a campus-wide “baile” and a community family event to life. A “baile” is like a dance, but with a “Hispanic touch to it,” according to the clubs. This event will help celebrate the 51-percent student body at PRHS that are Hispanic or/and Latino. There will be Hispanic music to dance to, food trucks, games, and more.

As of Wednesday morning, the fundraiser had reached $1,080 of its $2000 goal.
