100% Cultura! A 100% Mural Celebration
You’re invited June 25th to an inspiring community celebration in Española, part of the 100% Rio Arriba initiative to ensure vital services for all families.
Across 15 counties, 100% New Mexico initiatives are bringing stakeholders together to celebrate culture, collaboration and caring. In beautiful Española, the 100% Rio Arriba initiative is launching its second 100% Mural Project, as an opportunity for community members to come together and unite in the mission of strengthening vital family services for thriving.
The 100% Rio Arriba initiative is a groundbreaking strategy that lifts all residents up, with local projects that strengthen medical care, behavioral healthcare, food security programs, affordable housing, transportation, parent supports, early childhood learning programs, fully-resourced community schools, youth mentor programs, and job training.
At the first 100% Regional Summit, held in Northern New Mexico June 8th, change agents from across ten counties came together to share their plans for building the services shown to heal and empower families and communities. Summit participant New Mexico State Senator Leo Jarmajillo shared:
The Second Española Mural Celebration brings together artists, writers, filmmakers, craftspeople, poets, dancers, local leaders, and change agents committed to empowerment and a culture that cures. “You’re invited to celebrate community and the artists behind our new 100% New Mexico murals,” shares Diego López, Executive Director of Hands Across Cultures and 100% Rio Arriba organizer, “Meet the muralists Alejandro López and Cruz López and their teams of artists, plus poetry and a bold vision of Española, a place where 100% can thrive with ten vital services for all families.”
