Tequio Rising: A Fundraiser for Indigenous Youth in Higher Education
March 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$40.00
Join Mixteco/Indigena Community Organizing Project (MICOP) and the Tequio Scholarship Committee in supporting indigenous scholars in achieving higher education.
Come enjoy live music, delicious appetizers, and hear from the students themselves!
All proceeds will benefit 2020 Tequio Scholarships.
Established in 2012 to inspire and encourage academic success in the indigenous community, the Tequio Scholarship Fund provides individual grants and ongoing support to college students from Ventura County who are of Mixtec or indigenous Mexican roots. The term “Tequio” describes an indigenous person’s desire and obligation to assist their community. We provide these grants in the spirit of Tequio, and we seek to support highly motivated students who share this commitment to serve the indigenous community. As you climb, may you lift your community with you.
