Voz Alta: Amor en Los Tiempos de Guerra
Aug
24
to Aug 26

Voz Alta: Amor en Los Tiempos de Guerra

Voz Atla: Amor en los tiempos de guerra/Love in the Time of War presents an intimate dramatization of the lives of Anabertha Alvarado (Early Childhood Coordinator) and Dawn Joella Jackson (Principal at Helensview High School). Actors and musicians will perform their lived experiences, achievements, and personal endurance through the power of story, live music, and the music of words--poetry.

This dramatization that interweaves storytelling and music is written by Latino Network staff Santos Herrera and Joaquin Lopez. Guest director is Rebecca Martinez from Sojourn Theatre. Music director is Gerardo Calderon. Art Design is by former Latino Network staffer Rolando Avila with our Graphic Design and Communication Specialist Katelyn Henson.

Featured stories:

Anabertha Alvarado - Community Education Worker Coordinator for Juntos Aprendemos (Early Childhood). From an early age she learned the power of nurture, the depth of isolation, and the resilience of migration. Beating to her own drum, she knew she was different and learned to be proud of it! Enduring the loss of hope, she survived the debilitation of el pueblo chico e infierno grande to create a life filled with love and honor.

Dawn Joella Jackson - Principal at Helensview High School. Raised by her father, a hippy, Jewish musician, and a strong determined Latina mother, Dawn learned the strength of going with the flow and self-determination. Her New Mexico roots taught her there is nothing stronger than family and more powerful than a girls kiss! Raising two boys of color with her partner, Dawn’s story is a testament that love indeed does endure in a time of war.

 

Voz Alta returns to where it was first presented--Milagro! This year Latino Network is featuring a gallery in the Maya cafe and lobby of art created by Latino Network youth mentored by Rudy Rolon, Jesus Torralba, and Rodolfo Cerna. Check us out!

We're Marching in Portland Pride this year!

Latino Network is proud to be participating in the Portland Pride Parade this year to show our organization's support for the LGBTQ community and in particular our queer Latinx community members.

The parade is an opportunity to provide visibility to and celebrate the diversity of culture and contributions of the LGBTQ community. Through participating in events such as these, Latino Network can help break the stigma towards the LGBTQ community and the misperceptions that exist of the Latinx LGBTQ community. Many organizations, faith communities and businesses will also be marching in the parade. 
 
The parade takes place on June 18th and we would like to have a large group of staff, volunteers and participants representing Latino Network. Family members and friends are welcome to join in this celebration!

The Film:

Released in 1954, SALT OF THE EARTH is a feminist drama set in a small mining community in New Mexico. Based on the true events of a 1951 miners’ strike, the movie profiles the struggles of workers against brutal conditions and treatment due to corporate negligence. Esperanza Quintero, the wife of a protesting miner, must combat sexism and racism on both sides of the conflict to build a better future for her family. SALT OF THE EARTH highlights the complexity of gender, labor, and family relationships during a hostile political climate. Directed by black-listed director Herbert Biberman, the film stars Rosaura Revueltas, Juan Chacón, and Will Geer along with a cast of majority nonprofessional actors.

    Inspired by last year’s political events, it is clear now, more than ever before, we need to unite, align our beliefs and move forward together. As the election unfolded, we were inundated by questions from Latino families and youth we serve at Latino Network about their fate and safety. We responded with community forums that brought lawyers, activists and lawmakers together to answer questions and provide guidance. We were also inundated with requests from the community at-large wanting to know how to help and make a meaningful impact to Latino Network’s youth and families. A few meaningful conversations with staff and a little love from the Hollywood Theatre and a social justice film series was born!
