In 2008, Cherrie Moraga (playwright), Celia Herrera Rodriguez (InstallationVisual Artist) and Alleluia Panis, (Choreographer) received a $40,000 Bay Area Creative Work Fund, collaborating with San Francisco's Campo Santo Theater. The fund supported a performance work, developed through a "Jornada," in dialogue with (im)migrant/indigenous communities in Arizona, California, and Oregon. The work revolves around the theme of women separated from their children and lands of origin through forced migration and violence.
