The coming years will not be easy and the rippling consequences of this election present real and immediate dangers for so many in our community, and for our community at large. Violence inspired by hate has always threatened us, and now especially we must be ready to protect each other. Racism, misogyny, ableism, islamophobia and hate for LGBTQAI+ people will not prevail.
My name is Lucas Garcia, and as ALTA's Content Creator, I will be managing and updating this blog page. Just so you know a little about me, I was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM before making the jump to the midwest for school. My focus is in dramaturgy and creative writing, and I've been working with ALTA for about 3 months now. I'm elated to be working with the ALTA team, learning more about what ALTA can do for the Latinx theatre community in Chicago, and providing quality material for Perspectivas. If you have an idea for a blog post or series, or are interested in contributing, send me an email at email@example.com!
