University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice invite you to a talk featuring Alexis Terrazas, Editor-In-Chief of the San Francisco based bilingual Latino newspaper, El Tecolote.

Alexis is a San Francisco native with extensive experience, both as a reporter and as an editor. He was awarded a Peninsula Press Club Herb Caen scholarship in 2006 before going on to study journalism at SFSU. While at State, he earned many journalism awards and did some writing for El Tecolote. He graduated in 2010 and began work for the San Francisco Examiner as a sports writer then became El Tecolote’s Editor-In-Chief in 2014.

El Tecolote began as a project in a La Raza Studies class at San Francisco State University on August 24, 1970 and plays an important role in the community by covering issues often ignored by the mainstream press.  It is the longest running Spanish/English bilingual newspaper in California and its mission is to promote cultural arts, community media, and civic engagement as a way of building health and empowered Latino Communities.

This event was planned by a diverse group of UCSF staff who organized in response to the ongoing racial injustices. The goal of the UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice monthly speaker series is to promote critical thinking and action around intersectional structures of power, privilege, and racial oppression in clinical care, education, and beyond. We will continue to highlight the efforts of community antiracism activists.
