THE QUICK AND THE DEAD
A day of the dead fundraiser
for Union de Vecinos,
Clean Needles Now,
and School of Echoes
Celebrating the 50th birthdays of
Dont Rhine and Leonardo Vilchis
Performance by Robert Crouch
410 Cottage Home Street, Chinatown
Los Angeles 90012
All are invited. Cash bar, music, dancing, and special performances.
Bring photographs, memorabilia and other ofrendas to build a Día de los Muertos altar celebrating those who have gone before in our lives and in the histories of Clean Needles Now, Union de Vecinos, and School of Echoes.
Your generous donation will support the on-going efforts of Clean Needles Now (providing life-saving harm reduction health services for injection drug users across Los Angeles since 1992), Union de Vecinos (neighborhoods in East Los Angeles and the City of Maywood organizing for human rights and participatory democracy since 1996), and School of Echoes (a new community-based popular education initiative across Los Angeles County for artists, organizers, activists, and educators).
This event is being organized by Dont Rhine and Leonardo Vilchis as a way to bring diverse communities together to support the work each of us is doing as well as continue to build support for the School of Echoes popular education initiative launching early next year. Please joins us for some good music, dancing, and the day of dead vibe. All are welcome!
