Tia Lencha’s Cocina: I’m making tacos for teashers at Mijo’s eschool
Hola, is Tia Lencha here, in my kishen making tacos for the teashers at Mijo’s eschool.
The teashers are having a estrike becoz they want all the niños (thas kids for you pochos) no to be like sardines in the classrooms. Mijo says there are 40 estudens in his class! How can the teasher pay attenshun to so many niños? I can barely pay attenshun to Mijo when my favorite novela is on the televishun.
Mijo is helping me make the tacos for the teashers. He believes in la causa of the estrike. He says is no about the money only for teashers. Even though they get pay caca, those teashers. I always buy them giff cards for Targuess or Estarbus for all the holidays, so they can buy a relaxing candle or sone coffee. I dunno why, but teashers like coffee so much!

DATELINE GLENOAKS PARK, GLENDALE, CA, SATURDAY, AUGUST 25, 2018:
Gracie Pinzón de Hernández writes on Facebook:
I thought I would share this with you guys… this woman almost got away with robbing us from the joy of celebrating 4 years of life for our little one. We planned and saved to give him the kind of party we never had. My husband and I thought we would never be parents so birthdays are a big deal. I almost didn’t post this but decided that I needed to.

Captain Elotes: Representation and the Barrio Heroes
I just was a panelist at San Diego Comic Con, where Chicano artists like me discussed our role in art and comics.
We talked about the importance of Chicana and Chicano characters in media, and how it represents us as a community.
Representation is a key aspect in our work, and after watching the video where bearded villain Carlos Hakas is harassing street vendor Benjamin Ramirez, I was reminded of the value of not only representation of our bodies, but representation of our stories.
