Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Art Education

NAEA LogoThis past weekend, our very own Dalila Huerta is in DC serving on the National Task Force on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion from the National Arts Education Association (NAEA). Dalila was asked to serve on this national task force and we are very proud to have a member of our team advocating for our community at the national level.

We have worked to develop top talent here at La Casa de Amistad and are honored to have one of our team members among top national educators. This is an important topic as art and education are important to our work.

Keep up the good work Dalila!

If you have not been on a tour of our building to see all our youth art please swing by sometime!
