In recognition of the 62nd anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the closing of the 16 days of ARTivism for the healing of violence toward women and girls, MamaCoAtl hosts an evening of poetry, spoken word and performance art dedicated to ending violence against women, immigrants and the LGBT community. The multiple ways that people from these communities are the targets of violence represent the most egregious violations of human rights today. Tonight, we celebrate our human rights and reclaim those that have been taken from us.
Featured artists: Cihuatl Ce, HeadRush Productions, MamaCoatl, Yosimar Reyes, a special performance by Violeta Luna, and much more.

Adding new information into experiences that have been impacted by the presence of parasitics.
Why are there agendas based on greed, profit, cruelty and violence especially targeting women? was one question that was addressed in a new way.
Acknowledging and then releasing the pain of past violence will remove the patterns that are the foundations for the continuing patterns of violence.
We all left with new concepts to think about and a continuing commitment to ending violence in our world.

the new culture is created by a few people who are not afraid to be insecure.”
