Encuentrito Sessions, our backyard patio summer concert series and contest, is back from hiatus for another round of all new performances presented free of charge to our community. Just like last time, the Encuentrito Sessions will consist of three free concerts, each featuring three local emergent musical acts. A panel of judges will select two of these nine acts, who will then be invited to perform at the 38th annual Encuentro del Canto Popular (EDCP). For 2019 we’re expanding on our showcasing of local emergent Latinx artists, by adding a visual component—we have commissioned three artists to make three digital canvas “back drops,” one to be unveiled at each Encuentrito Session and to be compiled together and showcased at the year end Encuentro.

  • Today we stood in solidarity with journalists who are speaking
    2 weeks ago by accionlatinasf Today we stood in solidarity with journalists who are speaking up against the separation of families. If journalists seek to tell the truth, they cannot remain neutral when families are systematically ripped apart. Shoutout to  @mabeljmnz  for rallying members of the press + moderating today’s powerful event and to  @alexis .terrazas Editor in Chief of  @eltecogram  for speaking out against ICE detention centers.  #Closethecamps   #objectivityisamyth   #familiesbelongtogether   #30daysofaction
