Art by Layqa Nuna Yawar, a migrant Latinx public artist from Ecuador, and based in Newark, NJ. @layqanunayawar

Rainbow Roll Screenprint. Limited edition of 50, signed by the artist.

50% of proceeds will go toward Colibri Center for the Human Rights, a family advocacy organization dedicated to end family related suffering in the US Mexico border.

“I write to remind us all that migration is not a crime and that justice and freedom for all is a promise often only fulfilled for those with privilege. As the USA celebrates freedom it also incarcerates families seeking refuge from death and fear, many of those families looked at the North Star for guidance in the darkness the same way that I searched for Polaris in the night sky from my home in the Andes as a kid and imagined my migration, imagine the north, but never imagined the horrible present we live in today.” — Layqa Nuna Yawar

Your individual contributions support the Colibrí Center for Human Rights in our work to help families get answers about their loved ones missing on the U.S.-Mexico border. We believe that the policies and cultural narratives that put migrating peoples’ lives at risk are unjust and inhumane. No human being should lose their life crossing a border and no family should experience the pain of searching for them. We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization and all your donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your support!
