This day of celebration was definitely a beautiful one. The rain cleared and the sun came out. Sophie and her family drove up from Southern California, El Mac took time out of his busy schedule to come up for one day as well.
Prior to the celebration, Lauren Dickens, curator of the San Jose Museum of Art, invited us to her home to have a pre-event intimate lunch. It was nice to catch up and see everyone getting ready to celebrate this significant mural that was created by El Mac as a tribute to Sophie Cruz, the youngest activists who has become the face of the American immigration reform movement.
We had the honor to spend some time with Sophie and her family. This little girl is so phenomenal. When she's speaking to the crowd of people, everyone listens to her powerful words for human rights. Then the next moment, she's running around playing with her kid sister just like any other normal 9 year old.
We are thankful for the opportunity to have worked with El Mac, SJMA, CDM and the Propeller Group. Bringing entities like these together is something E7S continues to strive as we work to build partnerships.
