‼️‼️ R E P O S T : @11flowerchild
Recently the city has been wanting to take the underpass of 680 by story and king yes the one we all cruise under and BEEEP. The underpass as well as Story and King have so much history.. OUR HISTORY from Helgas to Lowriding to the marcha that toke place in 2006 ! Remember that one ?! I was so proud of my Raza that day I was only a lil mocosa♥️✊🏾 well they wanna do some Abstract art (something similar to the blue circles in downtown) and don’t get me wrong , abstract art is cool in its own way ik many Xicanxs that Focus on abstract art that’s chingon .. but the East Side ! Story and King ! THATS NOT US . So what happens when they try to “improve” OUR Barrio ?! Prices are already high! It will drive us out of ESSJ . That’s Reality. We have to stop them from Whiteifying the Hood. Who will be here to share OUR stories OUR struggles, our accomplishments and what we are capable of ? Who is going to tell the generations to come if there’s no more Raza and the hood isn’t the hood ?! That’s something that scares me everyday serio. We need to get murals that share those stories OUR stories show that we’re BROWN and PROUD not only that the diversity in our community. @jovenesactivos_essj we always say “Our Art is a form of resistance ! We are HERE! And we are not leaving” Let’s keep the hood ours ! Keep it every beautiful shade of brown.
So This Tuesday at the heritage plaza Me and @steven.cortez , @miguelkultura will bring many great artists together to start dialogue and create beautiful art and plan out what we wanna see in our Barrios and start the planning of murals ♥️✊🏽✊🏿✊🏾 (if you are an artists and wanna contribute to this movement you are more than free to come through) let’s paint our walls with our resistance ♥️ C/S su hermana xicana Sandra ✨ (I have so much passion for art , our Raza, community, ESSJ and OUR HISTORY and now everything is coming together I’m happy y’all )

Tomorrow is the BIG day! @jovenesactivos_essj and vecinos activos along with community members and amazing people coming together to educate and organize community. Tomorrow Monday you will break into groups and learn the history of San Jose whether if it’s about the Chicano movement (@razadelsoul & @mr.1777 ) or stories about displacement. Tomorrow is a very important day that help structure the whole week don’t miss out on a great opportunity.

A project Jóvenes Activós have been working on side by side with community members and Vecinos Activos. We present to You “Creciendo Juntos” - “Growing together” .
Week long community workshops/Dialogues and learning from each other . For community by community.
This year we have the honor of facilitating this week long event everyday will be different from finding ways to fight displacement and keeping our San Jose Families in SAN JOSE, learning how to take abandon properties and building housing on it , learning how to organize. Create Art that represent our struggle and success, Art that represent our stories as people of color and eventually painting them on walls all over The East side of San Jose. Hearing stories of San Jose Natives and the history behind the struggles. And looking to organize more youth in San Jose. ✨✊🏾✊🏽✊🏿✊🏼There will be community lunch and childcare care provided (limited spaces for childcare) children will also be learning ♥️ I hope your excited as much as we are !! Bring your familia, neighbors abuelita. (It will be in Spanish and English)
