On May 19th youth from 67 Sueños will be holding a fundraiser at La Peña in Berkeley to raise $ for a mural they are creating this summer. If you don’t know about 67 Sueños, it’s time to start paying attention! They are a bunch of high school students out of Oakland working on migrant justice. They’ve been involved with various art projects and actions, and you can read more about that at 67suenos.org. It should be enough to say that they are a group of dedicated young people doing the good work.
Now, about that mural. It will be the 2nd mural created by this group, the first one can be found at 9th and Mission in San Francisco. The first mural was about the dangers at the border, and is full of color, symbolism, and is just striking in its beauty. We expect more of the same from the second mural, this time though, the focus will be on immigrant women’s health. The mural elements and stories will be generated from interviews conducted by the 67 Sueños youth.
Come out and support this inspiring group as they bring out immigrants womens health to the forefront with their art! Event starts at 6p and La Peña is only a few blocks away from the Ashby BART station.
