Join us in this community art making project to create a collective art piece that will move around different public spaces to foster dialogue about everyday realities of undocumented people and immigrant communities in the U.S. This moving installation will highlight the need for actions like *DACA, *DAPA, and the Student *ACCESS Bill. Challenging ideologies of borders and socially constructed concepts of citizenship is fundamental to changing the way in which we live together. Moving beyond this to imagine a more inclusive society where access to quality education, clean and safe environments, decent housing, jobs and healthcare, guarantees a secure future for all.

  • Bring your creativity and radical imagination to paint with renowned muralist Maestro Hector Duarte. Everyone is welcome! All materials will be provided.
  • *Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals •  Deferred Action for Parental Accountability • Access to College and Career-Education for Statewide Success
