San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association teamed up with Lawyers Club of San Diego in 2001 for an annual Spring Read-ins at Central Elementary School. Lawyers Club had chosen the school to do annual Halloween Read-ins starting in 1997. The goal of a Read-in is to encourage the love of reading and the sharing of life experiences while encouraging students to have college bound goals. The school is a Pre-K through 5th grade school with mostly Latino children. Latino lawyers not only read to the children from a grade appropriate book they donate for the Read-in, but they also try to connect with students by sharing aspects of their upbringing and how they became lawyers. The Spring 2013 Read-in will be held on Friday March 15 from 11:45 to 1:15. If you are bilingual and interested in participating please email Rachel Cano at [email protected] or call at 619-531-4364.
