The Mexico crew have been SUPER busy these last few weeks and we have the snaps to prove it! Last week was the Pluma Coffee Festival where the team hosted a stall, sold handmade crafts, and spread the message of inclusion and diversity with coffee industry visitors from all around Mexico!
El equipo en México ha estado muy ocupado durante las semanas recién pasadas. ¡Tenemos unas fotos para compartir con ustedes! La semana pasada participaron en la Festival de café en Pluma. El equipo organizaron un puesto dónde vendieron artesanía y difundieron nuestro mensaje de inclusividad y diversidad con muchas personas involucradas con la industria de café.

"Our everyday spirit is 'Nacanu' Xhi'in' which in indigenous Zapotec language means 'we are all seeds.' We do believe that every one of us can be a seed of change and that of course includes you." - Dànae Chàzaro (TLF Field Director Mexico)

On Wednesday night our good friend Grace Stratton launched a new fashion platform called All is for All. The aim? To create a more inclusive and accessible online fashion experience for all people, including the disability community. All is for All invited Robbie Francis to be a panellist at the launch and Koha from the event was donated to the TLF Pluma Coffee Project.

This #RaceRelationsDay we reflect on the week that has been and we ask ourselves - where do we go from here? We remember the 50 individuals from our community who lost their lives and hold their families, whanau and friends in our hearts. We encourage everyone within The Lucy Foundation family to actively work towards ensuring all people feel safe, secure, included and valued within their community - regardless of ethnicity or race, gender, sexual identity, religion, ability or any other identity. This begins by listening with an open heart and an open mind.

We've been so busy fundraising and sharing the TLF story that we forgot to post photos taken a couple of weeks back! This was a really neat Track 2 workshop run by Catalina Merino Varela on how to grow and harvest vegetables for eating. A key TLF focus for 2019 is not only looking after the environment, but personal health and wellbeing too.
Hemos sido tan ocupados haciendo recaudaciones de fondos y compartiendo la historia de LFL que olvidamos compartirles éstas fotos que fueron tomados hace un par de semanas. Catalina dirigió este taller de Vía Dos, el objetivo de cuál era enseñar los estudiantes como criar y cosechar vegetales para comer. El foco de LFL para el año de 2019 es no solamente cuidar el medio ambiente pero también la salúd y el bienestar personal de la gente en nuestra comunidad.
