We are so excited to be a part ot this fantastic annual event in Oakland. ¿Donde Esta Mi Gente? is bringing together some of the bay area’s most exciting writers, poets, comedians, and performers to speak on the themes of immigration, strength, resilience, hilarity, what makes a good or bad immigrant, and how to survive the next four years.
¿Donde Esta Mi Gente? was created in part by a REGEN Artist grant from the Galeria de la Raza and focuses on dynmaic Latinx literary perfomers, comics, and musicians. For this show we are having a very special guest Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in solidarity with our fellow immigrants who are not Latinx.
