SOMOS IS A PEOPLE-CENTERED INITIATIVE TO INSPIRE AND MOBILIZE THE LATINX COMMUNITY TO ACTION
SOMOS is a multi-media initiative to connect Latinx change makers across the country in order to redefine and amplify the experiences of the Latinx diaspora.
SOMOS will be hosting a series of intimate dinners and dialogues across America where we will capture hundreds of amazing stories of resiliency and love. These stories will be curated into an online platform, alongside a visually designed book, a letterpress style portrait series, and video vignettes. This entire process will culminate with a larger gathering of Latinx change makers.
Through relationship-centered activations and partnerships, SOMOS connects Latino centered stories of resiliency, courage, and love. SOMOS is a space for healing, connection, and growth. SOMOS is a movement. SOMOS is you.
ART + CULTURE + ORGANIZING = CHANGE
As believers in the power of relationships, we know the critical importance of spaces designed for learning, sharing, and being in community with one another. As such, SOMOS is broadening the national narrative to be inclusive of the emerging American identity and creating on-ramps for Latinxs to become involved in efforts to transform American culture and society.
The goal is to amplify existing efforts, build local community power, and create intergenerational spaces for Latinxs to listen, learn and connect with those who have undergone incredible challenges, and emerged more bold, beautiful, and interdependent.
By deepening our understanding of self, heritage, and each other, Latinxs are playing a greater role in uprooting politics, art and culture.
