The mission of Quien Es Tu Vecindario, also known as “Who Is Your Neighborhood,” is to uplift communities through creative and accessible arts and education programs, and by extension, assist them in preserving their place and rights to equity in the city. Our organization’s name highlights the fact that it is PEOPLE who make up a home, a neighborhood, small businesses, and other forms of place-making; we thus work in and with communities who are often underrepresented in media and storytelling in order to inspire collective action to support them and their needs. Our nonprofit’s EID Number is 85-2097857.
