And if you have seen the show, please share this with your networks and tell them how it was! We sold out both shows in Boulder, and it is especially important to support these courageous young people in the final show in their home community of Longmont. We so appreciate your help in that effort, and the help of all of our sponsors: Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition, Longmont Youth for Equality, Immigrant Legal Services of Boulder County and the Firehouse Arts Center.

We hope to see you in Longmont on the 16th, and if you’d like to learn more about the amazing events of the Americas Latino Festival, you can follow this link: http://www.americaslatinofestival.org/events.
