That wraps up the Carnaval de Cultura Hispana hosted by Baltimore School for the Arts and their student group called Latinx Uni2 with whom our very own Valeria Fuentes worked with for the past 4 months to develop and plan this Latinx Market.
If you are interested in selling as a vendor ( immigrants/descendant of immigrants get priority) in the Festival or having a table for an organization that is relevant to the immigrant community please fill out this form.
Our upcoming event next month is themed “Sugar ‘n’ Spice” celebrating all that is femme, female, woman of immigrant identities. Bring your best dancing clothes and come out for another free night of celebration at The Crown (1910 N. Charles St.) as we gear up for the festival on April 28.
This Wednesday CASA and Roots & Raíces was in DC urging congress to not pass a CR bill if it does not include the Dream Act. We were supporting Jewish organizations that were arrested for civil disobedience for the Dream Act. We talked to Democratic Whip Congessman Hoyer who had agreed to saying no to the bill. At the end we were phone banking in Univision Washington. Today we are on our way back to the Capitol to do more office visits. Keep track of where we are on Twitter @rootsraícesfest
🎆🎊🎈Happy New Year! 🎈🎊🎆
I hope you all are ready for 2018. Be on the look for our next events in the coming months leading up to our festival in April.
Each month we have curated a selection of amazing local and regional artists from various genres and styles.
We hope to see you this Thursday at our first event of the year! Come out to listen to talented performers and also learn about how you can get involved in the coming weeks to advocate for our immigrant communities. We collaborate with CASA to provide access to the most up to date information on ways to be involved and informed.
Our launch party for Roots & Raíces this past December 16 was an amazing success. Thank you to all the performers and supporters. Looking forward to seeing you all at our next events!
