Masa’s Fall Update & Honoring Indigenous Peoples’ Day

Happy Indigenous Peoples Day and Día De La Raza! At Masa, close to 30% of the people we serve speak an indigenous language. Today, we celebrate them and all the native people of this continent who continue to be marginalized but whose beauty, resilience, and ancestral knowledge give us light, courage, and hope!

We also sent out our fall newsletter today — you can learn more about our recent work here.

Masa’s End of Summer Update

At Masa, we had a summer full of joy and learning in community! Our end of summer newsletter includes some exciting news about our parent organizing group, Masa Parents in Action, as well as a new women’s economic empowerment program we’ll be launching in the coming months.

Summer fun at Masa!

Summer always goes by so fast! Our Pre-K playgroup, literacy program, robotics program, and youth program have been learning and growing all summer. See some of the Masa summer cohort in action below:





Summer begins at Masa

Masa’s summer program began yesterday! We’re offering two robotics courses, two literacy courses, and a youth program this summer, and we’re so excited to have gotten started! In the coming weeks, we’ll also share details for some upcoming community events geared towards families of children under 5. Stay tuned!

May Update

Better late than never — see what we’ve been working on in our most recent newsletter. May included a visit from the new DOE Chancellor, Richard Carranza; a feature in El Diario about our parent organizing group’s campaign to end race-based bullying in local schools; and gearing up for summer!
