Ashly Villa-Ortega

This oral history project highlights the experiences of Mexican-American and Chicano communities in the State of Colorado. The purpose of this project is to organize a public reflection on how these communities understand and perform virtual and transnational concepts of community, kinship and solidarity and how these have been affected by the international COVID-19 health crisis.

This project is sponsored by OLA Colorado and has received partial funding from the Center for Humanities and the Arts at the University of Colorado Boulder. It is also supported by the work of individual members of the Red Global MX, Montañas Rocosas.
