Mayan War Room Fundraiser Report Back: $1,109.45 Raised! Here is how you can still DONATE!

YAY! Your contributions have helped a lot! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!


During our fundraiser at the Mayan War Room on SAT. April 7, 2018, you helped us raise $1,109.45 in exchange for a raffle ticket, t-shirt, buttons, posters, giant posters, photos, embroidered protest art or a simple purchase at our bar!

This will help us cover much of our costs of items for launching our campaign setting up and maintaining the Mayan War Room through April and launching our campaign “Gascón: Charge or Resign” THIS WEEK!

But we still want to continue to raise money through the month, not only for our campaign but to send a sizeable donation to the family of Luis, a humble Mayan family, in Teabo. We’re trying to raise the profile of Luis’s case this year, as we head towards the family’s civil rights trial in October! You can help us do this by sharing his story, placing a poster on your window, wearing a t-shirt, and yes, showing up for our campaign for justice by calling our Gascón this week!


We have also raised $338.95 so far through our online YouCaring Fundraiser! Bringing our total raised during Luis’s 2nd year commemoration on 4/7 to $1,499.40!

Please feel free to add some more$$$! We’ll give you a t-shirt for an online donation of $15 to be delivered at the Mayan War Room!


The Mayan War Room will remain open during the month of APRIL!

During regular hours at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, 2886 Mission Street (near 25th St.) Mon. 5-10pm, Tue.-Sat. 10am-5pm

JUSTICE4LUIS will keep office hours during the week from 1-4pm MON-SAT!

We’ll have our tees, buttons, posters, photos and more to give out for a donation!

Stay tuned on our Facebook page for upcoming events at the Mayan War Room!

Doña Carmen May Can, the widow of Luis, their daughter Rosana Góngora May, and other female family members sent exquisite embroideries for the Mayan War Room.

The large hipils and embroidered banner seen below are still available to take away for a donation (ranging between $75 to $200), as are many of the hand embroidered hipil posters. Money raised through the sale of the hipils and posters goes straight back to Doña Carmen May Can, widow of Luis, and their children. This is a once a year community remittance in lieu of Luis’s support.
