"The war against euphemism matters most because it forces us to look at the truth we already know." #truth #NotOneMore
Richard Martinez, in the height of his grief, somehow did the hardest thing there is: he found the courage to speak a painful truth.

This month's topic: Mobility 

We're excited to be partnering with MobilityATX in June to bring dialogue about transportation solutions to all areas of town. By joining with MobilityATX for this conversation topic, we’re able to increase the number of decision makers that will be listening to the voices of the community.

The specific focus for our conversations will be about our individual travel behaviors and the personal responsibility we each hold in helping to solve our region’s mobility challenges.  The feedback we receive will be combined with input given through MobilityATX’s online forum and their town hall discussion on June 23. Come share your thoughts and listen to the ideas of others. We’ve saved a seat for you!

Got to admit... sometimes I think I'm the ONLY one in the class stoked about Aztlán. "...we have seen that land called Aztlan and Colhuacan, where our fathers and grandfathers lived and from where they left on their migration." #ethnicstudies #Aztlan http://ow.ly/ptCvi

Story
Introduction

Born in Monterrey, Mexico and raised on the border in El Paso, TX, Teresa grew up in a bicultural and bilingual environment. As a young girl she struggled to find a public identity that would allow both cultures and languages to exist as one. Living in the US during the school year and spending holidays and summer breaks in Mexico was a cultural advantage as well as an identity battle. This personal and public conflict with a dual identity sparked her curiosity in self-realization and social definition and deepened her determination to make multiculturalism advantageous and acceptable by society at large.

She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish Language and a Master of Arts degree in Modern Languages, specializing in Spanish Literature & Linguistics from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. She initiated her professional career to teaching the Spanish language, literature, culture, and history through the Spanish folk soul, inspiring in her students the importance and merits of being a world citizen.

Now, through her writing, Teresa furthers her aspiration to share the multicultural experience with others and initiate a genuine interest and awareness in world cultures and languages. Sententia Vera, Teresa’s blog, has allowed her to reach a larger audience, connecting her readers to the Spanish culture through language, translation, and literature. The recent launch of her multicultural e-bookstore, Dulce Bread & Book Shop, is expanding her global outreach by sharing the cultural experience through literature, cultural titles, and ethnic authors.

Teresa has volunteered with the YWCA Greater Austin since the fall of 2009 as a member of its Board of Directors, and is the 2011 Board Chair. The YWCA Greater Austin is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Teresa has been married 16 years and is raising five children.
