  • I'm a teacher at Rudy Lozano Leadership Academy, a small social justice high school in Pilsen. Most of our students come from low-income families, and they have a hard time paying for college. This Friday, we're having a silent auction, dance, dinner, and fundraiser to raise money for college scholarships for our kids. If you can donate items for the silent auction, donate money, or attend this Friday, click on the following link. Thanks!
