Raechel Running: Light in the Shadows

“In my art and activism I try to overcome despair and to make visual connections for people to foster kinship and hope in these times of change.” The photography of Raechel Running abounds with cultural symbolism and inter-cultural harmonies and dissonances. The results are eye-popping. She uses her talent, time and energy to help a number of organizations, including One Heart World-Wide, which is working to improve the dismal maternal health and mortality rates of indigenous populations in Mexico.

So Much to Tell: playwright Raúl Dorantes

The play De Camino al Ahorita by teacher, cultural activist, and writer Raúl Dorantes addresses the contrast between the promise of America and its dystopian backstory—and how these figure into the lives of immigrants. Dorantes donates some of the proceeds from his work to organizations like Casa Aztlan, which provides arts education, emergency services, and a variety of Latino cultural and civil services.
