December 2019: Photos from Posada Sin Fronteras and Noche Navideña
At the Noche Navidena, we wrote prayers for hope, peace, joy, and love. The prayer stars will hang in Café Justo y Mas during Christmastide and perhaps beyond. Stop by for a cup of coffee and pray with us?
November 2019: Art as Resistance and Hope: painting a mural on the border wall
We painted birds and flowers from the nations represented by people who wait along the wall as they seek asylum in the United States. Images now adorning the wall’s southern side include the dahlia from Mexico, plumeria from Nicaragua, the scarlet macaw from Honduras, the resplendent quetzal of Guatemala, chamomile from Russia, and the sunflower from Ukraine.
