Vote for Arte Público Press at Valoramás

A message from Nicolás Kanellos,

We at Arte Público Press have the opportunity to win a grant of $35,000 from an online buying club (like Sam’s or Costco): Valoramás. Just a few Houston community organizations have been invited to participate, and we’re one.  You can do this by voting for us on the Valoramás web page. To vote, you have to become a member.

It won’t cost you anything, but will help us a lot during these difficult times.
