Imagínate: Justice!

On January 25, 2014, we held an arts for justice workshop to help young people express their views about the sentencia and express their solidarity with Dominicans of Haitian descent who have had their nationality taken away.

On Saturday, October 25, 2014, we are hosting another event, using the excitement of the arts to continue bringing this issue to the forefront.

Joins us for a full day of learning, discussion, and free arts workshops to denounce the Dominican Tribunal court rulings that stripped Dominicans of Haitian and other descent of their citizenship.

Through fun and creative arts exercises participants will reflect about the danger of xenophobia, racism, anti-immigration policies, and deportations worldwide. And they will have an opportunity to share their collectively created art with each other as well as with officials who have a power to undo these unethical rulings.

Workshops will be facilitated in English and Spanish. All ages welcome!
