On May 17th, Silicon Valley Latino – Cultura Ambassador, Andrea Guendelman and her team at BeVisible led an unprecedented event in the Bay Area, #BeWokeSF.
The purpose and message of the event were clear challenging Silicon Valley: it is not enough to just hit certain diversity numbers. Companies must be intentional about going further than simply inclusion. They need to move towards developing a sense of belonging that leads to retention and productivity.
As Andrea, co-founder of Be Visible and the event’s organizer, shared in her opening remarks, “Belonging is what we should be talking about all the time.”

#CreoEnTi is an initiative that we have recently launched. Essentially, it is our way to help unite our community and more importantly tell various sectors of our community (Dreamers, Latinas, Youth, Scholars, Educators, Entrepreneurs, Innovators and our leaders) that we believe in them and that we stand with them.
At this time, we have initiated a #CreoEnTi Ambassador program. When you become a #CreoEnTi Ambassador, you are demonstrating that you stand with us, with our community and our values. This ambassador program is open to anyone who wants to support our initiative and believes in our work as a social venture.
Should you wish to become a #CreoEnTi Ambassador, you may process your ambassadorship through the following link:

In our continued series of events San Jose City College & Silicon Valley Latino are proud to invite you to this exclusive film screening of Anthony Lucero's Award Winning "East Side Sushi"

Winner of multiple awards such as:

Special Jury Award at Arizona Int Film Festival
CAAMFestival Audience Award
Audience Favorite Choice Award Cinequest San Jose Film Festival
Audience Award San Francisco Latino Film Festival
Audience Award at Naples International Film Festival

"Single mom Juana can slice and dice anything with great speed and precision. After working at a fruit-vending cart for years, she decides to take a job at a local Japanese restaurant. Intrigued by the food, she learns to make a multitude of sushi on her own. Eventually, she attempts to become a sushi chef, but is unable to because she is the 'wrong' race and gender. Against all odds, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery, determined to not let anyone stop her from achieving her dream."

After the screening, you will have the opportunity to listen to a moderated Q and A with several cast members as well as ask questions.


We suggest you reserve your spot early as we anticipate that this event will fill up fast.


We look forward to seeing you there!
