Lalo Alcaraz

Image by Lalo Alcaraz

Migration Now! was a 2012 print portfolio co-produced by Justseeds and CultureStrike (CultureStrike is now part of the Center for Cultural Power) which explored the social, cultural, and emotional facets of immigration.

Lalo Alcaraz is a political cartoonist, visual artist, designer, poster-maker, satirist, and writer. He draws the nationally syndicated comic strip “La Cucaracha” and is an award-winning editorial cartoonist. Alcaraz is also the Jefe In Chief of the satirical website Pocho.com, and host of KPFK Radio’s weekly Pocho Hour of Power program.

“Liberty’s On The Run” was visually inspired by the ubiquitous immigrant crossing sign and thematically, it was inspired by the continuing efforts of Arizona’s right wing politicians to harass undocumented immigrants. The image suggests a violation of brown people’s human rights.
