Stanislaus Service Center’s Equity Team presents: East of Salinas


Join us for a FREE
screening of a documentary about a bright student and a dedicated teacher. Stay
after the movie for a discussion led by Oscar Ramos, the teacher featured in
the film.

East of Salinas takes us to the heart of California’s “Steinbeck Country,” the Salinas Valley, to meet a bright boy and his dedicated teacher — both sons of migrant farm workers. With parents who are busy working long hours in the fields, third grader Jose Ansaldo often turns to his teacher, Oscar Ramos, for guidance. But Jose is undocumented; he was born in Mexico. Like many other migrant children, he is beginning to understand the situation — and the opportunities that may be lost to him through no fault of his own.

This is a FREE Community event.
