We learned long ago that the only real justice in this world is a clean conscience and a good time, and thats whats on tap at Da Una Mano/Give a Hand: Fashion Meets Social Justice, a fundraiser for the clean conscience/good-time gals at Las Otras Hermanas, an anti-poverty group that stumps for economic empowerment based on fair-trade practices.
The good time part of the equation includes a fashion show; music by the Party Foul DJs, Djentrification, and Vanessa Atalanta; dance by Scorpius and Dulce; art by Elizabeth Schneider and ASARO (the Oaxacan Assembly of Revolutionary Artists); and an appearance by Phoenixs Ali Vincent, the first female winner of TVs The Biggest Loser.
