Program:   “Creating Community During Hard Times"

Speaker: Ernest Bustillos, SGHA Trustee & Asst. Professor, Pasadena City College

Creating Community During Hard Times looks at the way Mexican immigrants who came to San Gabriel fleeing the Mexican Revolution were able to survive the hard times they initially experienced in their new country. During the 1920s and 1930s when some described their presence as the “Mexican problem,” they had to deal with anti-immigrant sentiment, poverty, the Great Depression, negative portrayals in the press, and limited employment opportunities. But they dealt with their situation by creating community through the bonds of family, the formation of mutual aid associations, the development of ethnic enterprises, and shared experiences in the churches and schools, as well as participation in sports teams and involvement in a variety of social activities.

Before Mr. Bustillos speaks about Creating Community During Hard Times, we will have Association Officer & Trustee Elections.  See the attachment November Newsletter for the proposed 20169Officers and Trustees.
