This year the Chicas Latinas de Sacramento will be builidng an alter for the La Raza Galeria Posada’s “Panteon de Sacramento: A Mexican Tradition Revisited” community exhibit.
Our alter will be a tribute to those who have been victims of domestic violence. In an effort to show just how prominant the problem is in our community and how it affects so many of us, both male and female. Our alter will feature the faces of those whom have been impacted by it.
We are asking members of the community, both male and female, who have been affected by domestic violence to take a stand and submit a photo of yourself for our alter. It doesn’t matter if you were in an abusive relationship yourself or if you knew/know someone who is/was, we wont ask.
Photo requirements: portrait, black & white, 5×7
And we understand that this is a difficult issue and some may have privacy concerns, so if you are uncomfortable with having your picture displayed, we are suggeting that you decorate your portrait in the traditional “calaveras” style.” (We are able to do this for you as well).
If you have any questions, or would like to submit a photo email us at: info@ChicasLatinasdeSacramento.com
