To our people! We are a group of Jovenes Nobles (Noble Youth) that have been working diligently to raise funds to restore a historical mural in Downtown Gilroy, CA. The mural is a giant 30ft Aztec Calendar located on a building that is about 50ft tall and will be the final installment to a series of 3 restoration projects. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to hire youth interns, purchase necessary materials and scaffolding, maintenance and lastly to rehire veteran Chicano Muralist Guillermo Aranda! Campaign efforts include: November 3rd, 2018 we had a fundraising kick off/Dia de los Muertos event with Tacos El Guero and gave a short presentation to the City of Gilroy's Public Art Committee. We are currently applying for a grant through the California Arts Council and are planning future fundraising events with local artist Nacho Moya at Moya Arts Gallery. We will continue to brainstorm new ideas for our fundraising campaign every week at the CARAS office. (Community Agency for Resources Advocacy & Services) This is a project that will restore culture and history in California but only through the power of unity amongst our communities. Please help sponsor and donate to our ongoing efforts and we thank you in advance!
