Happy 4th of July! Before you head out for the long weekend, please save the date for NACLA's summer fundraiser, which will take place on Wednesday, July 31 at the Counting Room in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There will be a raffle, auction, art sale, music, and cocktails, so it promises to be a night of fun! You can find out more and purchase tickts here.
And if you haven't checked it out already, our summer issue on "Chavismo after Chavez: What was Created? What Remains?" was released last week! This issue explores what Chavismo was all about. The articles in the Report section provide analysis and discussion on the institutional structures that were created under Chávez and what they might become following his death and the election of Nicolás Maduro.
P.S. For those of you who have had trouble purchasing the issue online, we apologize for the inconvenience—we were having some website issues, but they have been resolved.
Prints for Sale!
The summer issues showcases the works of Leandro Viana, a Brazilian documentary photographer based in New York. His series Bolivia in São Paolo beautifully documents Bolivian migration in São Paulo and was awarded the 2011 Conrado Wessel Award in Brazil and was featured at the Chobi Mela International Festival of Photography in January 2013. NACLA has partnered with Viana to bring you limited edition prints from his series, which you can purchase here. Proceeds benefit both NACLA and the artist.
