Fair for Languages Against Gun Violence
On Wednesday, June 1, students and faculty from the World Languages Department mounted a Fair to celebrate French and Spanish-speaking countries through games, presentations, and food – and to raise funds to support anti-gun violence measures.
Students gave lessons in merengue, painted patterns from zapotec rugs, served cuisine marocaine, wove bahía bands, and presented on Aztec numbers and Mayan glyphs – as well as spoke passionately about reducing gun violence here in the District and sold 1,375 carnations to support their cause.
Booths & presenters included:
Can You Read Mayan? Dancing Merengue and Bachata Fortune Telling Les Misérables Live Guitar Music Lotería March For Our Lives Memory Forest about Senegalese Veterans Pathways 2 Power Poetry Recitation Reimagined Tragic Paintings Toma Todo Game
