On May 17th, a new and necessary Arts Council was formed in your city:
The Capital Latino Arts Alliance (or, CLAA)
The core makeup of our organization is represented by 4 groups (for now), and their founders/ directors: La Raza Galeria Posada, Calidanza Dance Company, Teatro Espejo y Teatro Nagual.
THE REASON we are asking for you to attend:
Our 'Campaign' is to have all city council members, and the public, take notice of and act upon our Message - To gain parity, and actual acknowledgment, of our “expressed” cause when it comes to city arts funding...
Achieving equality in the distribution of Sacramento’s city arts funding for Latino/ Chicano Cultural Arts organizations, non-profits and artists.
For the Sacramento Region as a whole:
Our Alliance is to be - and is - multicultural in:
1) Its scope and make-up,
2) Its varied artistic endeavors, and
3) Its community outreach.
From this 'Gathering'... We hope to achieve 'en masse' a great turn-out at the following week's (Tuesday June 25th) city council meeting:
To voice OUR Arts Alliance's needs and progressive action in Sacramento.
We will meet on Tuesday, June 18 at La Raza Galeria Posada's site at Miller Park:
2700 Front Street, Sacramento, California 95818
Refreshments begin at 6:00PM
Introductions begin at 6:30PM
... Followed by the details which led to our formation and public call to action.
Please join us... as an arts patron, arts organization founder, business owner and professional... or soon to be new member of our Alliance.
... and "Share-out" your 'Invite' to family and friends here in the Region!
