Unlike the large metropolitan areas of high Latino concentrations like Los Angeles , New York City, and Texas , here in Middle-U.S. America things are different. Even though, according to census statistics, the Latino culture is now the largest minority, Los Unidos believes it is not reflected in higher levels of local government and institutions.
The students will learn real-life problematics in getting the film produced. And that is another mission of Los Unidos, to teach Latino students the determination that it takes not only for minority students, but for all students, that a worthwhile goal takes a tremendous amount of sacrifices and dedication.
Los Unidos will contact governmental, civic, and cultural organizations in an attempt to obtain the funding for this project. It hopes to unite Latinos behind its effort to bring this project to a positive conclusion. It plans on finding ways to raise funds from car washes, food sales, and bailes.
Los Unidos is asking anyone with information or knowledge of fund raising opportunities or film production capabilities to contact Antonio Barrios, Vice President of Public Relations of LCCC, at (440) 320-0295 . It is accepting cash donations or in-kind contributions.
“Although the task may seem insurmountable, the value learned is immeasurable,” said Barrios.
