Please go support our new fundraiser. Our mural will address the abuses of human rights and environmental battles that have been a part of human history. From the indigenous colonization by the conquistadors to today's oppressed poor and marginalized people who are still fighting racism, discrimination, and the abuses of Mother Earth, this mural is meant to be a gift to our community.
Our goal is to create a mural that will have a dramatic impact on our neighborhood and our city, to attract attention to social justice issues, and inspire our citizens.

In 1829 Allen paid $2,500 for 29 acres of land located about a mile north of Buffalo's downtown, extending from Main Street west to Hudson Street. Today that’s the bulk of Allentown. Back then, it’s where Allen domiciled his short -horn cattle. According to oral tradition, as the cattle trod from Main Street to the pasture at what is now Days Park, the meandering path they created eventually became Allen Street.
Hermorso lugar con gente marabillos y llena de Alma.

“ESPERANDO EL DESTINO” LAST DAY TIL TODAY NOVEMBER 27 th. FREE OF CHARGE IN AMAZON KINDLE STORE (IN SPANISH) https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=node%3D154606011&field-keywords=esperando+el+destino&rh=n%3A154606011%2Ck%3Aesperando+el+destino A story that begins in a charity party in the south of Spain; continues through Asunción, capital of Paraguay; ciudad del Este, capital of unlawful activities and finishes in Buenos Aires. Our now friends, Jordi Gonorria, economist who also plays the role of amateur “chef” and the former police inspector Quito Verdudo, rub shoulders with the human trafficking mafia and with the politicians that rig them. A tough story, traced by a doomed fate, that even though some passages may amuse us, in others load us with the anguish produced by this modern way of enslaving and abusing of the helpless. As it is already a custom, they are accompanied by the usual friends and characters emerged from the story, the literature and even from the movies. And they end up stumbling with astonishing revelations of current issues which the media published in front pages not long ago. In the itinerary, our economist-cook some time enjoys and others bears his emotional and erotic hieroglyphs. And he makes time to offer us delicious dishes, kitchen stories and hot news about economy and economists. www.cortemoslacarajo.blogspot.com
