“I came to know Padres con Voz because my daughter participates in ISLA Los Sabados. This program was a great opportunity for me, as a father, to find the necessary tools, learn about the system, and challenges we as parents face with our children in the school system. Padres con voz helps empower us as Latinos and a community to be more unified. My favorite experience was share with other parents about their own experiences and issues they have had and how they resolved them.”
