In between, guests can check out our mini "zine fest" where local creators, La Semilla will be selling copies of their zines and sharing more information about their work to uplift community voices. Visitors will also have the opportunity to create their own mini zines about the causes most important to them, in the spirit of Dolores Huerta's ethos of grassroots knowledge and strength.
