Gracias a Jesús y Kate para su visita, su visión, su pasión para justicia, y para esta pintura mural hermosa. Esto es un regalo durable a la gente de Davis, y esperamos que esto cause la amistad durable y la unión con la gente de Oaxaca.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stared at the large, blank wall on the east side of the Davis Media Access (DMA) building on Fifth Street. Beige, bland and empty except for a sign that still needs to be updated (note: it's been updated, Oct. 15--check it out!), I’ve long thought the wall is just crying out for a mural. But it’s one of those projects we have perpetually put off in the face of more pressing needs at this community media center.
