Celebration and Promotion of Pluralism

 

We curate and share photos, articles and videos on the topics of mixed culture, mixed heritage and mixed identity; whether mixed by proximity, relationships, or adoption.


This blends with our mission of reducing xenophobia and racism which we blog about at Community Village where we also monitor and expose the oppression and hate that is opposing the multicultural and pluralist movements.

But no worries, you'll be entertained with his take on these trends, as he himself is a living example of one of the most prolific ones."

Latino and Latina Identity | Thomas Lopez on Mixed Race Radio | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"Thomas Lopez has held various positions with Multiracial Americans of Southern California (MASC), Los Angeles, CA since 1995 and continues to organize numerous conferences, workshops and events such as Race In Medicine: A Dangerous Prescription and Rx For the FDA Critical Mixed Race Studies Conference, DePaul University, 2010.

 

Thomas is also a filmmaker, having produced, "Mixed Mexican" which was shown at the Mixed Roots Film and Literary Festival (2010), Readymade Film Festival (2010), and Hapapalooza Film Festival (2011)

 

On today's episode of Mixed Race Radio, Thomas will announce the start of a new program by Multiracial Americans of Southern California (MASC) called: Latinas and Latinos of Mixed Ancestry (LOMA).

 

The purpose of the LOMA project is to:

Provide space for expression of mixed Latina/o identity.
Provide culturally relevant material to the mixed Latino community.
Raise awareness of this community to society at large.
This will be accomplished by:

The establishment of a website with blog and forum discussions.
Social media campaign.
Attendance at conferences.
A public relations awareness campaign.


MASC seeks to broaden self and public understanding of our interracial, multiethnic, and cross cultural society by facilitating interethnic dialogue and providing cultural, educational, and recreational activities. In 2009 MASC celebrated twenty years of incorporation.

 

As a part of our mission, MASC has always worked to raise awareness of the impact of multiracial identification. During the 1990’s, we successfully worked to revise the Census to allow multiple racial classifications."

U.S. Census Bureau Establishes National Advisory Committee on Racial, Ethnic and Other Populations

U.S. Census Bureau Establishes National Advisory Committee on Racial, Ethnic and Other Populations | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"The U.S. Census Bureau announced today the establishment of the National Advisory Committee on Racial, Ethnic and Other Populations. The Census Bureau has also named the committee's members and leadership.

 

The National Advisory Committee will advise the Census Bureau on a wide range of variables that affect the cost, accuracy and implementation of the Census Bureau's programs and surveys, including the once-a-decade census. The committee, which is comprised of 32 members from multiple disciplines, will advise the Census Bureau on topics such as housing, children, youth, poverty, privacy, race and ethnicity, as well as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other populations.

 

"We expect that the expertise of this committee will help us meet emerging challenges the Census Bureau faces in producing statistics about our diverse nation," said Thomas Mesenbourg, the Census Bureau's acting director. "By helping us better understand a variety of issues that affect statistical measurement, this committee will help ensure that the Census Bureau continues to provide relevant and timely statistics used by federal, state and local governments as well as business and industry in an increasingly technologically oriented society."
