Join us this March for a full evening exploring Nicaragua’s cultural and political past, present and future

Altruvistas, ICAS/Juntos Adelante and Nicaragua Center for Community Action (NICCA) are thrilled to host the Bay Area premiere of ‘En La Casa, La Cama y La Calle’ (At home, in bed and in the streets) and a preview trailer for upcoming film Abrazos de San Pancho. Both films delve into Nicaragua’s complex political and social history.

San Francisco Poet Laureate, Professor and Activist Alejandro Murguia will give remarks at the event.

Proceeds from the evening will benefit midwifery and community health clinic, The Mama Licha Clinic Project, and women’s rights and anti-human trafficking organization Grupo MOES, both based in Esteli, Nicaragua.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction and learn more about upcoming travel opportunities to visit Nicaragua and see these projects in person.
