LET'S CELEBRATE WHAT BRINGS US TOGETHER
AND WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE!

Sylvia Mendez

 Sylvia Mendez was part of a movement to desegregate schools in 1940's California. Her parents, Mexican and Puerto Rican, joined forces with other parents to demand equality in the Westminster, CA school district. She was bestowed the Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in 2018.  Their story is powerful and inspiring!  Feel free to share with students.
