"Charity is commendable, everyone should be charitable. But Justice aims to create a social order in which, if individuals choose not to be charitable, people still don't go hungry, unschooled or sick without care. Charity depends on the vicissitudes of whim and personal wealth, justice depends on commitment instead of circumstance.
Faith-based charity provides crumbs from the table; faith-based justice offers a place at the table"

I hope all of us can take 1 minute to sign this petition and tell the Hispanic Scholarship Fund that they should also make their scholarships availiable to AB540/Undocumented students!

Thanks for your support!

Subject: [razaeducators] Open Scholarships for Undocumneted Students

>>> Please Distribute Widely<<<

DearTeachers and Community Members,

The Association of Raza Educators believes that all students should have the right to attend college regardless of their citizenship status. Unfortunately, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) does not feel the same way.

Fact--In 2008, HSF gave more money to Hispanic students than any other organization.

Fact--HSF refuses to allow undocumented students to apply to their scholarship even though it is lawful for them to do so.?

Over the past two years, the?Association of Raza Educators has raised $30,000?in scholarships for undocumented students, but we understand that this is just a?small fraction of the financial?support that?undocumented students?really need. Please support?ARE in our campaign to ensure that all students receive an equal opportunity to attend college.

Signing the online petition below, will send a clear message to HSF that it is wrong to discriminate against undocumented students.

Please sign the online petition below.


In Solidarity,

Association of Raza Educators
