Let's Taco 'Bout It

Thursday, October 27th | 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Mexican Food's Extraordinary Powers

In Southern California, Mexican food isn't just cuisine—it's a way of life.

At the next Redlands Forum, OC Weekly publisher and editor Gustavo Arellano will join us to talk about his book Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America. Gustavo will explain our 150-year love affair with Mexican food and how the Inland Empire helped make tacos famous in the United States.

Don’t miss it!

Redlands Gives

Thursday, November 17th | 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Redlands Gives and the Challenges Ahead

In this season of giving, we will focus on the complex state of the Inland Empire nonprofit sector as it seeks to meet the growing and ever changing needs of those in our communities who find themselves in less fortunate situations. Transparent needs, sustainability, and the County’s vision for the homeless question will all be addressed.

Invited speakers include - Greg Bradbard, CEO of the Inland Empire United Way and a representative of the Funder’s Alliance; Kent Paxton, Homeless Policy Advisor and representative from the Interagency Council on Homelessness, and a facilitated panel featuring Kyra Stewart of Redland's Family Services and Stacy Iverson with Children's Fund as well as other local non profits joining in on this important discussion.

Registration will open one week prior to the forum.
