Nova High School is having a fundraiser tomorrow evening, November 28th at 6:30 PM to support this year’s Nova High School’s Social Justice trip to Guatemala. Nova High School is located at 300 20th Avenue East in Capitol Hill.
A movie of previous trips will be shown at this event sharing the work that the students have done in collaboration with students in the Nuevo Amanecer (New Dawn) Community of repatriated refugees whose members were ravaged by the US-backed military violence in the 1980s and 90s. Nova has joined with this community for the last four years in working with the students in Guatemala providing them with training and a bridge out of extreme poverty.
There will be food, music, stories and lots of prizes. It is asked for those who attend to donate $10 or more to fund the trip.
This is one of many projects related to social justice that the students at Nova High School are involved in.
