Seed Drive for Puerto Rico
Please join us at the Los Angeles Contemporary Archive (LACA) for an afternoon of food and community in solidarity with Puerto Rico.

Saturday, November 18
2-5 PM 

We will be collecting:

Seeds* for the Puerto Rico Resiliency Fund 
Healing Potions** for the Center for Embodied Pedagogy and Action
Puerto Rican lunch will be available for a $10 donation towards the cultural workers' fund at Beta Local

There will be a reading table with books and articles about the situation in Puerto Rico, as well as a station with materials for making and sending postcards to government officials.

Please RSVP at our facebook invite so we know how much food to prepare
