HOW WE HELP
We provide cultural enrichment in diverse communities including holding safe spaces for cultural traditions like Danza Azteca de ColorAztlan.
We provide transformative indigenous education, braves spaces for cultural representation, and campaigns to address awareness and bring enforceable protections with cultural and trauma sensitivity to issues in the indigenous communities.
Some of the issues we have worked on have been; Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, domestic violence, drug/homeless/mental health support, support for asylum seekers, and environmental awareness.
Currently we are working as climate change organizers and cultural educators for disproportionately impacted communities to create protections from cumulative impacts of environmental racism.
