Honoring Berta Cáceres, music & resistance from Honduras
Join us on May 3, 2017 in San Francisco or May 4, 2017 in Oakland for a performance by popular Honduran protest singer Karla Lara with Melissa Cardoza, author of “13 Colors of the Honduran Resistance.”
Cardoza, an afro-indigenous feminist poet and journalist, and Lara, whose songs are the soundtrack of today’s popular struggle, will perform stories of women resisting brutal repression and finding unyielding hope.
A post-performance dialogue will examine the parallels between current struggles in Honduras and the U.S. There will also be a book signing and reception.

Todos Unidos: A Benefit Concert for Central American Youth
EcoViva is thrilled to be collaborating with the Organization for Youth Empowerment (OYE) on a leadership exchange between youth from El Salvador and Honduras.
This unique initiative will help both grassroots organizations build on each other’s knowledge, skills, and experiences to cultivate and engage the next generation of Central American leaders.
To celebrate and to raise funds for youth to participate in the exchange, we’re putting on a benefit concert May 19th in Washington, DC, in which musician Michael Romero will perform songs by the late Honduran folk singer Guillermo Anderson.
