Thank you to: Cole’s Hardware, Papalote, Virgils, Metate, and Don Ramon’s, El Buen Comer, La Taqueria, and Tortas Los Picudos for your food and drink donations!
SUGGESTED DONATION: $20, this includes food and a drink. We will also have $5 raffle of beautiful and cool Oaxacan bags, a silent auction of art work, and a live auction of some beautiful pieces including a large Zapotec rug and a papalote designed by Francisco Toledo! Thanks to the many beautiful donations of art, we lucked out with an amazing collection and will continue to welcome art!
We are asking for $ over tents. But if you brings them we will deliver them and Galeria will accept donations for two more weeks.
Long term we’d like to establish a page and a working group that can respond to the ongoing crisis’ in Latin America due to climate change and activate immediate assistance. We see you too

—-For Oaxaca, where my family is (Bobbi) thousands upon thousands are now homeless, 1/3 of of some towns have completely fallen down, buildings are still falling, and worse, the tremors and aftershocks continue. Oaxaca is already the second poorest state in the country.
We know so many if you have visited and have fallen in love with Oaxaca, and right now Oaxacans need all the support especially in the Istmo.
The Istmo is a beautiful and cultural rich part of Mexico, and Juchitan, a city with many homeless right now, is known for its tolerance toward Queers, in particular the Muxe (Third gender) community, and for it’s socialist and leftist learnings, was one of the most hardest hit.
We are always accepting help for: volunteers at the event, art work, and food donations.
Thank you kindly for Galeria de La Raza allowing us to use this space, and for being the cultural hub.
