This is a bilingual flipbook: Spanish and English.


Students at Bell Gardens Elementary School did not know how impactful their voices were until they had Ms. Hiatt as their teacher.  In her class, they learned about the Great Depression of the 1930s and soon realized that the history book did not mention people that looked like them, Mexican Americans. Curious about the topic, the students began to do research and created plays, poems,  book reports, and videos to present to students and teachers at their school. Their lives soon changed when an opportunity arose from Assemblymember Cristina Garcia's contest 'There Ought to be a Law.' Come learn what happens next after they participate in the contest.
