L@s Desarraigad@s is a group of queer xican@ artists, activists and healers who are planning a trip to our ancestral lands. As historically uprooted people, we feel a strong need to reconnect with and reclaim our heritage in community. In January of 2015, we will be travelling to Mexico together for 2-3 weeks. The goal of our trip is to reclaim language, form personal and political connections, visit culturally and historically significant places, and have fun. We will focus a significant amount of time on forming relationships with Mexican@s who are also artists, activists, healers, queers and punks. Our goal is to begin to learn about being allies to our compañeros in Mexico and continue that work upon our return to the States.
These funds will cover:
Airfare for 8 @ $500/each
14 nights in hostels @ $15/each
Other costs not included in our goal are:
Language school $175/each
We are planning on putting out a zine when we get back, blogging during our trip and maybe having a performance/presentation about our experiences.
