Daira Quinones, a displaced Afro-Colombian activist from Bogota, Colombia, will tell her story of oppression, resistance, and survival in Ephraim at the Unitarian Universalist Fellow on Friday, July 1 at 7 pm.
Currently, Daira Quinones resides in Bogota where she tirelessly defends the human rights of Afro-Colombians, Indigenous, and Campesino communities. She is a gifted singer and uses music to transform desperation into hope for the many displaced persons that seek her support. Daira’s strength, courage and compassion have made her both a threat to repressive powers and a beacon of hope for the victims of Colombia’s armed conflict.
The Social Responsibility Committee of the UU Fellowship invites you to meet Daira and learn about the struggles of Afro-Colombians and the other displaced communities of Colombia, to support Daira and her community and to hear her inspiring story and music.
The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42, Ephraim. For more information, visit www.uufdc.org or phone 920.854.7559.
