Dare to Dream: A Day of Justice, Art, and Empowerment

The Monarch Project will be hosting a public art and advocacy event at the Reunited Courthouse Square, Santa Rosa CA on May 2nd!

Dare to Dream is an event centered around promoting the protection of immigrant worker rights in Sonoma County through community art, film, and advocacy. The event will be composed of several central parts including a poster sale and exhibition of artwork created by The Monarch Project, and other local artists and art organizations discussing immigration. The funds will be donated to immigrant families in Sonoma County.

To submit pieces for the exhibition and the poster sale check out our page on Creative Sonoma which outlines the details and all the necessary steps. Everyone is welcome to submit their art!

We will also have a monarch butterfly painting workshop for all ages and skill levels lead by local artists. You can also stop by our photo booth and snap a picture with your own pair of butterfly wings!

The conclusion of the event will be a collection of speakers that represent the workers and Dreamers of Sonoma County who will share their stories and experiences and offer opportunities to further support the cause. 

Following the events taking place outdoors at the Reunited Courthouse Square, we will be showing a series of short films that tell the stories of immigrants in Sonoma County created by My American Dreams at the Glaser Center Auditorium.

Please help support our very first public event and join us on May 2nd at the Reunited Courthouse Square!
