The tie-in potential has not been overlooked by Rights for All People, an Aurora organization devoted to organizing the immigrant community for social justice. The immigrant leaders and the people we serve have taken that story and written their own script for it, turning it into a metaphor for the immigrant experience, says RAP organizer Nicole Melaku of Posada Sin Fronteras (sin fronteras means without borders), a theatrical rendition of the tradition with a rabble-rousing touch.
That performance is the centerpiece of a celebratory RAP fundraiser that also includes dinner, music and of course piñatas, and runs from 4 to 8 p.m. tonight at Rangeview High School, 17599 East Iliff Avenue in Aurora. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for children; for more information, go to www.rap-dpt.org.
