Lastly, La Tolteca 2.0, much like the original La Tolteca ‘Zine (issuu.com) seeks to affirm through artistic, cultural and activist resistance to the growing fascist, White supremacy, corporate greed that governs much of the world. During Times of Covid-19 Pandemic with countless individuals suffering from isolation, depression, economic hardship, loss of loved ones, no health insurance and no access to quality medical care, ill, and a sense of desperation about what lies ahead we hope La Tolteca 2.0 blog helps serve as a community. If you have tips that may be helpful to people in your area–volunteers who make deliveries, food bank locations, teacher/tutors who may help with at-home schooling, where to get tested, phone numbers and emails to send letters to your local officials–in other words, walk your talk when you’re not on social media reposting memes and critiquing others who have had the courage to make social change. It’s what put the active in activist. Post your helpful, positive comments and recommendation as a Comment.
