To highlight and galvanize support for global aid organizations, and raise awareness to fulfill our potential and social responsibility in the wake of the Fuego Volcano eruption in Guatemala earlier this summer, the United Nations Association of El Salvador has partnered with the Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MA TESOL) Outreach Program at The New School to present Una Voz, Un Mundo, a concert for humanitarian awareness, featuring a unique collaboration of visual artists, performers, journalists, and social justice activists.
Please join us for this free, multi-disciplinary arts event which will celebrate social and artistic contributions as a platform for global advocacy.
Background: On Sunday, June 3, 2018, the Fuego Volcano, located 27 miles southwest of Guatemala’s capital: Guatemala City, erupted. As many as 1,713,566 people were affected mainly through ash intoxication and acid rain, leading authorities to issue evacuation alerts which triggered mass panic in the surrounding population. This massive population shift resulted in the collapse of critical roads, and continues to challenge local and national disaster management.
