Join us for a presentation, discussion, food and music.

Josefina Castillo and Viola Casares will present with photos and discuss their trip to Chiapas in April to visit La Cooperative Jolom Mayaetik, a collective of weavers in San Cristobal.

Their visit marks a further step in finding ways of collaboration between Jolom Mayaetik, Thread of Justice (Fuerza Unida), and Austin Tan Cerca's annual Women and Fair Trade Festival, which will be held in Austin at the end of November.
