October is the month for music. A cadre of our Creative Change alumni are hitting the stage, flocking to musical festivals, and leading rallies for social justice from the Chattahoochee Hills of Georgia to the streets of Boston.
Hector Flores, Leah Gallegos, and David Flores (CC ’16) of the L.A.-based band Las Cafeteras have announced their fall national tour schedule with shows in cities across the United States and Canada. The tour, named "The People's Party,” celebrates the struggle for peace and justice by highlighting local work in the name of this mission. In addition, Las Cafeteras is collaborating with PICO Network to highlight immigrant rights work in six cities across the country and to Get Out the Vote. The activists will also be organizing a National Day of Action with Detention Watch Network in Washington D.C. to bring awareness to the human rights abuses of private detention centers and to end incarceration of migrant families.
