What We Do

At Aliento, we create community healing through art that leads to collective people power.  We create art that reflects the humanity of undocumented immigrants who have been criminalized by the harsh and unjust U.S. detention and deportation system.

Through political education workshops, community building spaces, leadership development, and art creation, we seek to shift the U.S. society away from the belief that punitive practices lead to justice and safety for our society.  

Through art we heal and build power to reimagine a community without a punitive system, where we create a healing and learning space instead of punishment and blame.
