La Cosecha”

Conference focusing on the immigrant experience 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Saint Mary’s Cathedral, 1111 Gough St., San Francisco

Our 20th year Anniversary Conference and Celebration of Concordia Seminars
will include workshops on issues such as immigration, substance abuse, youth
and gangs, and depression. Various artist will also take the stage and
express through their artistic works.

The keynote speaker for the event is Rene Saucedo, Executive Director of the
San Francisco Day Labor Program. Ms. Saucedo is a long time community
activist, and expert in the field of immigration issues. The workshop
presentations includes updates on immigration law, mental health and
substance abuse issues, trends of Hispanic gangs, and issues facing Latino
LGBT communities.

Featured artists include percussionist Sal Nuñez, Salvadorian inspirational
traditional folk singer Anita Bonilla, performer artist Marc Pinate and
other cultural artists.

Concordia is the result of an active partnership between the SFDPH Community
Behavioral Health Services and many San Francisco community based
organizations that serve Latino clients.

For 20 years Concordia has provided an opportunity for continuing education,
networking, and support for culturally and linguistically appropriate
services to many health, mental health and community services providers.
Through monthly seminars and occasional larger conferences we have worked
with hundreds of people over the years. These participants have, in turn,
provided their expertise, energy and vision to thousands of Latino and
Spanish speaking clients, youth, elders, etc.
