7th Annual Adelante Mujer Conference

The North County Latinas Association is proud to announce the keynote speaker for the 7th Annual Adelante Mujer Conference will be Dr. Mica Estrada-Hollenbeck.

Dr. Estrada-Hollenbeck is a former active member and currently a corresponding member of the Program on International Conflict Analysis and Resolution at Harvard University.

She has helped conduct problem-solving workshops between Israelis and Palestinians under the auspices of Professor Herbert C. Kelman and has consulted with many colleagues concerning other ethnic disputes in Cypress, Northern Ireland, the "former Yugoslavia," and Sri Lanka.

NCLA invites Latina girls in the 5th through the 10th grades and their mothers, as well as their teachers and other interested Latinas of North San Diego County to the Adelante Mujer Conference to share some quality insight with Dr. Estrada-Hollenbeck. The conference will be held on April 24, 1999 at Martin Luther King Middle School in Oceanside, from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

Following the theme of the conference is "Education: The Foundation To Your Success," workshops will address the issue of the continuing high dropout rate of Latino students with the young women and their mothers. By providing the opportunity for young North County Latinas to come together with successful and educated Latinas, who can also serve as role models, school-age girls can begin to see themselves as successes as well.

Participant registration forms will be available at North County school offices. The cost is $10 per participant (students and their mothers) and $15 for all other adults. Conference fees include all materials, activities and lunch. To obtain an application, please contact the AVID teacher, counselor or principal of your school, or call NCLA at (760) 431-3812.
