Latinx Story Project
In 2019, The Hearth received a three-year grant from the Oregon Community Foundation to work with Erica Ledesma to help develop the Latinx Story Project. Re-titled De La Raíz, the project is dedicated to gathering and sharing stories of the rich and many Latinx communities of Southern Oregon. Through personal interviews, research, and visual art, this project hopes to center and uplift Latinx voices while challenging stereotypes and national narratives. Stories from this project are distributed through an online archive, local exhibits, live gatherings, and print journals. Hear stories and learn more about the work of De La Raíz here.
