The consulate does amazing work with labor rights, family law, criminal law, and health services.

The event was a casual, conversational environment with a q/a session, and there was a large turnout including faculty and staff. The event will also be covered by the Bryn Mawr website.

We thank Rocio for coming and sharing her perspectives, and we look forward to getting involved with the Mexican consulate in the future to help promote human rights here and abroad.

Immigrant Rights In Philadelphia Speaker- March 14th

Guatemalan Tea Study Hour

On March 1st, Little Known Help Zone held their first event for the Spring Semester promoting labor rights and equality in Central America. This study hour featured light food and Tea from the Chirrepeco Cooperative, a Guatemalan tea coop that practices unionization and voting rights, as well as fair wages and women’s empowerment. The even was a great way to unwind and study for midterms while supporting a great cause and reflecting on fair labor practices!

Hope to see you there!

Little Known Help Zone Bingo

Last night, Little Known Help Zone Bryn Mawr hosted a bingo event that was aimed to raise awareness, money, and spirits.

The event featured custom printed boards with positive and negative words associated with human rights in Central America, as well as past and future work Little Known Help Zone has done.

There were delicious snacks, as well as amazing prizes. One of which was donated by the Bryn Mawr Film Institute, a year long film institute membership that was very exciting to those attending!

The event was a success and a great way to get together and learn about how to help in Central America in a positive environment.
