9th Annual HOPE International Music Festival


College Nine and College Ten Co-curricular Programs Office, the HOPE Planning Team, and our Cosponsor Hermanas Unidas are proud to present the 9th Annual International Hope Benefit Concert.

Hope is a tradition with a cause here at the University of California, Santa Cruz which seeks to address social justice issue from around the world incorporating both the College Nine theme of International and Global Perspectives, and College Ten's theme of Social Justice and Community.

This year HOPE will highlight Mayan women's activism on reproductive rights in the Yucatán Peninsula. All proceeds from the event will go to the Mexican NGO, Semillas, which provides economic resources and funds to women organizing in Mexico around obstetric violence and the struggle for reproductive rights.

The Hope Benefit Concert will provide opportunities for students to gain knowledge about the fight for reproductive rights in both the Yucatán Peninsula and in our community through tabling, letter signing, petitions and other forms of activism by international and local organizations.

The concert will feature live music, performance, food, tabling and an interactive art project. The HOPE Concert will be held outdoors at Colleges Nine and Ten on Saturday, April 11th from 1 to 4pm (rain moves event indoors to Multipurpose Room). The concert is open to the campus community and all proceeds will be derived from the regional food which may be purchased (by donation) at the event.
