Come listen to the stories and poetry of local poets, Cathy Arellano and Yaccaira Salvatierra. Cathy Arellano claims roots in the Mission District of San Francisco, telling stories of family, queer identity, and the daily struggle to remain seen, respected and heard in the ugly face of gentrification and displacement. Yaccaira Salvatierra writes about the ways families and lovers disconnect and try to remember each other while being across borders, focusing on the strength of women who hold their families together and reconstruct realities to resist erasure. Join us celebrate the power of the word with two powerful mujeres!
