Special invitation to our
20th Anniversary celebration
We invite women in your community to join us to participate in a special performance: Renowned feminist artists Patricia Ariza and Beatriz Monsalve will guide a group of women through the creation of a performance based on immigration and domestic violence. Participants will be able to experience the joy of creating collectively and the satisfaction of artistic expression.
