Dear family, friends and community,
I'm happy to announce the One Journey U.S./Mexico Border tour schedule with this amazing flyer!
It's been a blessing to collaborate with my Honduran sister and artist friend Jacqui Martinez, who I had the opportunity of meeting through Rainbow Theater at UCSC. For all folks that are familiar with Rainbow Theater, you all might know that this is a 20 year artist family in the making. Incredible theater artists, activists, organizers, writers, designers and technicians have come out of this diverse student organization that instilled in us values of professionalism and a dedication to "uplift someone else higher than yourself."
Empowerment, love for community, creativity and sisterhood has brought us together, and this is what we have to share!
Thank you Jacqui for all the work that you do and for giving vision and love to this project through your art! Pa'lante con One Journey!
