As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Location

San Gabriel , CA

In the San Gabriel High School auditorium, children and their families were singing and dancing; raising and lowering their hands with the performers. Instead of calling out, “Up, down!” last Saturday morning’s cheer sounds like, “Arriba, abajo!” What looks like a standard book fair and arts-and-crafts event is actually a Spanish children’s literature pop-up opportunity. The Alhambra Latino Association co-hosted the celebration with LA librería, an organization that brings Spanish-language children’s book fairs and cultural activities to L.A.-area schools. 123 Andrés – pronounced uno, dos, tres, Andrés – performed in Spanish and English, encouraging audience engagement throughout the performance.
