MIXED HERITAGE DAY WITHTHE LA DODGERS A HUGE SUCCESS!
August 27 was the first ever Mixed Heritage Day with the Dodgers.
Mixed folks turned out in numbers to celebrate being mixed and enjoy a day at the ballpark. The pre-game show was extra special featuring certificates of recognition from LA Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office by his representative Amanda Mejia. Receiving certificates were event organizers and MASC Board Members Delia Douglas, Sonia Smith-Kang, and Multi-Culti Corner and MASC President Thomas Lopez.
See some of the many smiling folks that turned out. Can you spot the celebrities too?
Thank you to our event sponsors especially Mixed Roots Stories and Mark Edwards!

MASC Presents at Pomona College Student Mentor Training
The Claremont Colleges have a wonderful peer mentoring program between new and returning students of color. Recently, a mentoring group was established for mixed race students. As part of the mentor training program, on August 24, MASC was invited to present “Navigating Multiracial Identity” by MASC board member Jennifer Noble, PhD, and “A Multiracial Perspective on the Census” by MASC President Thomas Lopez. The students were very engaging, often anticipating with their questions what was to be presented next. Way to go Pomona College for being so “woke” regarding the multiracial community! MASC maintains a speakers bureau for your school, work, church, or other gathering. Click HERE for further information.
