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.
