Guatemala Social Justice Travel Program
Saturday June 16th, 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM
2021 NE 75th St., Seattle
In the home of Joe Szwaja, History teacher at Nova and coordinator of this social justice project.
The students are asking for donations to help the ex-refugee community that they have linked up with. All donations will be greatly appreciated!
• Great food, drink and Guatemalan Crafts
• DVD’s and Photos Highlighting our Social Justice Programs
• Music by Nova Students and Local Musicians
• Student Stories about our Magical Social Justice Trip
All proceeds will benefit scholarships and job training for students in the Nuevo Amanecer (New Dawn) Community of repatriated refugees whose members were ravaged by the US backed military violence in the 1980s and 90s.
Nova has linked up with this community for the last five years and ongoing support is vital for these students to continue their education and have a bridge out of extreme poverty. Invest in justice and youth activism!!!

Nova is termed an “Option School” by the Seattle Public School district. I like to call it a progressive alternative to traditional learning. It’s a gem of a school with great teachers and a knowledgeable principal.
With schools like this in Seattle, we don’t need charter schools.

This is not the time to cower in a corner.
As my dad would say, "All the world loves a fighter, not the man who lies down bravely to die, but the man who fights like hell to live."
It's time to get up, stand up and fight the fight.

#BlackLivesMatter- We having nothing to lose but our Chains
People of color and Black people have been oppressed and suppressed by white privilege and white supremacy.
We have nothing to lose but our chains of oppression from last 300 years+ even as we have a white nationalist president sitting in the White House. So it time to march for Freedom and say our brother and sisters of color can no longer be oppressed and suppressed and as we lose our chains in unity.
We say "We are free FOREVER"
