Join us to listen and reflect together on powerful stories from the "Voices of Centro Humanitario: Labor, Barriers and Hope in the Times of COVID-19” project. Led by the community outreach team of Denver’s Centro Humanitario para los Trabajadores, this Museum of Memory project brings together stories of struggle, resilience and hope from Latino immigrant workers in Colorado’s Denver metropolitan area during the first year of the pandemic. Project curators Marina Cruz, Patty Grado, Blanca Madrid, Guadalupe P. Martinez and Sarahy Plazola will share excerpts and insights from the project’s oral history interviews. History Colorado’s Museum of Memory Manager, Dr. María Islas-López, will host the program. This program will be in Spanish, with interpretation in English.

Centro Humanitario para los Trabajadores is a labor center in Denver, CO, that provides education, advocacy, and resources for low-wage immigrant workers. Museum of Memory is History Colorado’s public history initiative that works with communities to co-author their shared history and explore their past on their own terms and in ways they want to remember it.
