Honoring Latinx Culture, Roots and Our Collective History with Dr. Cesar Cruz

Honoring Latinx Culture, Roots and Our Collective History with Dr. Cesar Cruz

Hispanic Heritage Month is held from September 15 – October 15 to celebrate the various independence days and acknowledge the diverse cultures and contributions within the Hispanic and Latin diaspora. Originally started as a heritage celebration week in 1968, the observation was expanded to a full month in 1988. TUC provides a learning experience that promotes the acceptance and appreciation of diversity to prepare professionals for rewarding lives in service to others both locally and around the globe. To that end, the University is celebrating the contributions of Hispanic and Latinx individuals in order to inspire and empower its students, healthcare and educational professionals, and the larger Vallejo community with its Seeds for Social Change Speaker Series.

Dr. Cesar Cruz: Raised in Compton, CA, Dr. Cesar Cruz became the first in his family to graduate high school, UC Berkeley and Harvard University with a doctorate in Educational Leadership. He has been an educator since 1994 and is currently overseeing the Homies Empowerment Program based in Oakland, which serves 25,200 meals weekly through its FREEdom Store. He is also designing an ethnic studies high school for youth pushed to the margins.
