Virtual Roundtable 2: Radical Care and Folk Traditions

This discussion explores the ways in which people in their communities are drawing on folk traditions (corridos, art, embroidery, graffiti, gritos, verbal arts, music, dance, dress, and more) in news ways during this era to band together, to protest, to engage in collective action, to mourn, to celebrate, to offer support, to create moments of 'radical care" in their communities.
