Jul 13, 2017

Las Cruces, NM - On this edition of PUENTES, bridges to the community, host Emily Guerra meets with local author and New Mexico State University Anthropology Professor Emeritus, Dr. Christine Eber. In the early 2000’s, with the help of former students and colleagues, she started a project in Las Cruces called “Weaving For Justice” as a part of “Sophia’s Circle,” a non-profit art and cultural organization, to help women from Chihuahua and Chiapas, México sell their weavings through fair trade in the United States.
