PROTÉGEME A MI NO ARMAS

Jeanette Arellano

Creé esta imagen en respuesta al tiroteo masivo en la escuela primaria Robb en Uvalde, TX, el 24 de marzo de 2022. Donde la mayoría de las víctimas, estudiantes morenos y maestros de color, fueron asesinados por la violencia armada, la codicia y el poder político de los colonizadores que continúan tomando decisiones sobre las vidas de nuestro futuro. ¡Esta imagen representa la voz de nuestros jóvenes si los escuchamos!

She collaborates with many artist-activist groups including Voces De Los Artistas (VDLA),  Art Build Workers, and Raices Revolucionarias.

Jeanette also teaches citizenship classes to adults through Voces de la Frontera. Jeanette is a union member with Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association (MTEA). She, along with a group of similarly dedicated art teachers, formed an art education advocacy committee through MTEA which successfully lobbied the school board to commit to better supporting students and art teachers in the district.
