This dramatization that interweaves storytelling and music is written by Latino Network staff Santos Herrera and Joaquin Lopez. Guest director is Rebecca Martinez from Sojourn Theatre. Music director is Gerardo Calderon. Art Design is by former Latino Network staffer Rolando Avila with our Graphic Design and Communication Specialist Katelyn Henson.

Voz Alta is supported in part by the Regional Arts and Culture Council, Multnomah County Cultural Coalition, and PDXLatinXPride.

Anabertha Alvarado - Community Education Worker Coordinator for Juntos Aprendemos (Early Childhood). From an early age she learned the power of nurture, the depth of isolation, and the resilience of migration. Beating to her own drum, she knew she was different and learned to be proud of it! Enduring the loss of hope, she survived the debilitation of el pueblo chico e infierno grande to create a life filled with love and honor.

Dawn Joella Jackson - Principal at Helensview High School. Raised by her father, a hippy, Jewish musician, and a strong determined Latina mother, Dawn learned the strength of going with the flow and self-determination. Her New Mexico roots taught her there is nothing stronger than family and more powerful than a girls kiss! Raising two boys of color with her partner, Dawn’s story is a testament that love indeed does endure in a time of war.

Voz Alta returns to where it was first presented--Milagro! This year Latino Network is featuring a gallery in the Maya cafe and lobby of art created by Latino Network youth mentored by Rudy Rolon, Jesus Torralba, and Rodolfo Cerna. Check us out!
