Join us at our Dia de la Raza banquet in resistance to Columbus day while also upholding the celebration of black and Indigenous people. We will have some great food, performances, and keynote speaker Prisca Dorcas!

Tickets are $3 in advance and $5 at the door. All proceeds will be going to the undocumented student scholarship fund.

Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodriguez was born in Managua, Nicaragua, but calls Nashville, Tennessee, home. She got a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University in the spring of 2015. The bulk of her work is around making accessible, through storytelling and curating content, the theories and heavy material that is oftentimes only taught in the racist/classist institutions known as academia.

To date she has published over 200 articles online and particpated in the YA anthology Nevertheless, We Persisted. She started the platform Latina Rebels in 2013, and currently it boasts over 200k organic followers online. She has been featured in Telemundo, Univision, Mitú, Huffington Post Latino Voices, Guerrilla Feminism, Latina Mag, Cosmopolitan, Everyday Feminism, and was invited to the White House in the fall of 2016.

She is unapologetic, angry, and uncompromising about protecting and upholding the stories of brown folks. Que viva la gente!
