ARIZONA: Virtual Tamales for Macehualli Day Labor Center Survival

Dear Friends,

As we reach the beginning of a new year we would like to thank you for
all the support you have given us to help save the Macehualli Center.

However, the families helped with the center will lose this important
pillar of support early next year unless we do an extraordinary effort
to save it. We have had many fundraising activities to save the Center
in this time of financial distress. However, with the frontal attack
by Sheriff Joe Arpaio many have cowered and now face the same attacks
the Jornaleros were the first to confront. What better way to confront
oppression than using our culture in a virtual counter attack by
helping the workers during Posadas and Xmas with a virtual tamale
sale.

You can donate online anywhere from $1 to $50 and receive a virtual
tamale, you choose the flavor and quantity that helps a great cause
this holiday season. Tonatierra is a Non-Profit and your contributions
are tax deductible.
