Thank you all for a great 2018

Dear friends,

My second year as executive director of Acción Latina has been transformational, both for myself and the organization. In 2018 we welcomed new members to our family and said goodbye to old friends as they moved on to new endeavors. We continued make a positive impact in our community by publishing the city’s best and oldest bilingual community newspaper, running a gallery focused on Latino art and artists and by collaborating with other community organizations to activate and sustain a thriving Latino Cultural Corridor. 

As we move forward into the new year, we hope you will stand with us. Your tax-deductible donations help us to continue our important work.


We aren’t just interested in soliciting your money though. We want to involve you in our work. We are a grass-roots, community organization which means we can’t do it without the help of our community. We are always looking for interns and volunteers, to write and translate for the newspaper, to staff our events and to assist with in our gallery and our other cultural arts programing.

Having said that, I would like to offer a warm thank you to all who volunteered their time in 2018 to help us carry out our mission to promote cultural arts, community media, and civic engagement as a way of building healthy and empowered Latino communities.

  • Join Accin Latina for the opening reception of New Mestizx
    3 weeks ago by accionlatinasf Join Acción Latina for the opening reception of New Mestizx on May 24 & celebrate transcultural hybridity that explores what emerges when cultural identities, histories, and people intersect in the Bay Area. The works on view reflect the experience of twelve artists of Filipinx and Latinx heritage living in between worlds as they navigate their identity through the lens of New Mestizx, a term inspired by writer Gloria Anzaldúa. Through photography, mixed media, prints, paintings, textile, and audio installations, artists explore how gentrification, motherhood, transnational migration and intergenerational transmission of culture informs how they choose to remember or redefine traditions.
