Developing the agency of community members, youth leadership and cultural pride is a central element of Juntos’ work in Philadelphia’s Latinx immigrant community. Since 2012, Juntos has implemented an arts-integrated social justice practice to offer after-school workshops, arts-builds, and community celebrations to our larger community as part of our effective strategy to build critical awareness, resiliency, and expression.

Over the last few years, participants have worked with local teaching artists Gerard Silva and Erika Guadalupe Nunez to create socially minded art for local actions and rallies as a way to reflect lived experiences and resistance against problematic mainstream narratives, current events, and legislation.  Through art, we engage community members to lead the conversation around issues of immigrant rights, criminal justice, and other issues of equality.
