WHY SHOULD I ATTEND THE PURPLE PARTY?

Get ready to eat, drink and dance the night away SAFELY while helping raise money to close the digital divide amongst girls of color.

The mural has become the most powerful art form in the age of COVID, social injustice and the demands for equity in our nation, and has been a staple of the landscape, culture and identity of Old East Austin for decades. This year Latinitas is taking on the issues of 2021 the same way it has since 2002: By closing the digital divide for Austin’s most unrepresented communities!

This year, Latinitas will unveil a mural in the heart of East Austin to recognize the original advocate for closing the digital divide: Ana Sisnett, Executive Director of Austin Free-Net and powerful advocate for free access to technology for all, earning her the title “Technomama!”The mural is being created by famed local muralists, Carmen Rangel and J Muzacz.

 Join us as we celebrate the female heroes of Austin’s communities of color for a fundraiser unlike any other - The Purple Party for Chica Power 2021!

¿POR QUÉ DEBO ASISTIR A LA FIESTA MORADA?

Prepárese para comer, beber y bailar toda la noche de forma SEGURA mientras ayuda a recaudar dinero para cerrar la brecha digital entre las chicas de color.

El mural se ha convertido en la forma de arte más poderosa en la era de COVID, la injusticia social y las demandas de equidad en nuestra nación, y ha sido un elemento básico del paisaje, la cultura y la identidad del Viejo Este de Austin durante décadas. Este año, Latinitas está abordando los problemas de 2021 de la misma manera que lo ha hecho desde 2002: ¡cerrando la brecha digital para las comunidades menos representadas de Austin!

Este año, Latinitas presentará un mural en el corazón de East Austin para reconocer a la defensora original de cerrar la brecha digital: Ana Sisnett, Directora Ejecutiva de Austin Free-Net y poderosa defensora del acceso gratuito a la tecnología para todos, lo que le valió el título " Technomama! ”El mural está siendo creado por famosos muralistas locales, Carmen Rangel y J Muzacz.

¡Prepárate para beber, bailar y comer! Únase a nosotros mientras celebramos a las heroínas de las comunidades de color de Austin para una recaudación de fondos como ninguna otra: ¡La Fiesta Púrpura para Chica Power 2021!
