Latinx Heritage Month

This is Latinx Heritage Month at Foothill College. Please check out a list of events available to you this month: Latinx Heritage Month Calendar   

Check out these events this week:


Join Karina Vázquez from Rapid Response Network (RRN) to learn how you can volunteer to protect our neighbors at risk of ICE activity by becoming a Rapid Responder.

The Rapid Response Network (RRN) in Santa Clara County is a community defense project developed to protect immigrant families from deportation threats and to provide accompaniment support during and after a community member's arrest or detention.

Password: Community


Come and join students who share their story and listen to some of their writing pieces such poems, short stories and much more that they put together. These students are telling the many stories that revolve around the Latinx community from their cultural roots, family history, and the duality of being Latinx.
