Rotary DTLA - Dr. Gabriel Buelna

Come join our next meeting on Thursday, September 20, where our speaker will be Dr. Gabriel Buelna, Member of the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees. The Mission of the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) is to foster student success for all individuals seeking advancement, by providing equitable and supportive learning environments at LACCD’s nine colleges.

Dr. Gabriel Buelna graduated from California State University Northridge (CSUN) with a Bachelor’s degree before completing a Master’s program in Social Work at San Diego State University. He earned his Ph.D. from the School of Politics and Economics at the Claremont Graduate University. In 1999, Gabriel joined CSUN as a faculty member where he continues to teach history and politics in the Chicana/o Studies Department.

In the early 90s, Gabriel began his career as a children’s social worker with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and went on to work in foster care. He worked with abused and neglected children, their families, law enforcement, and the courts. Through this intense involvement in the community, Gabriel learned that safe neighborhoods, job creation, and education are the foundation for healthy families.

Join us for happy hour/dinner 6-7pm at the 3F Invention Bar, followed by our meeting at 7:15pm.

Guests and visiting Rotarians welcome!
