“Las Cruces New Mexico Hope Stories,” by David Lee Del Norte

September 4, 2018

Join us for our monthly History Notes lecture, as David Lee Del Norte presents “Las Cruces New Mexico Hope Stories,” on Thursday, September 13 at 1pm at the Branigan Cultural Center.

The project, “Hope Stories,” seeks to document Mesilla Valley Community of Hope staff, volunteers, and board members, while encouraging a discussion about poverty, homelessness, and hunger in New Mexico.  Mesilla Valley Community of Hope consists of five contributing organizations: Camp Hope; Jardin de los Niños, the Early Childhood Educational Program; El Caldito Soup Kitchen; Casa de Peregrinos, Emergency Food Program; and St. Luke’s Health Care Clinic, now renovated into Amador Health Center.

In January 2017, Del Norte began public history graduate research on poverty, homelessness, and hunger in New Mexico borderlands at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. The NMSU Hope Stories project can be viewed at www.elpueblomemory.com.

History Notes, monthly lectures on historical topics, takes place on the second Thursday of each month at 1 pm. Lectures are free and open to the public.
