Nina Serrano: Supporting World Peace, Civil and Human Rights
Nina Serrano web site holds many products of my life’s work in supporting world peace, civil and human rights as both an artist and organizer. Traveling this road led me to encourage the growth of Latino/USA culture and political rights with my artistic and community work, locally and globally.
My poetry, writings, plays, films, and radio programs helped break the blockade of ideas about the Cuban revolution and the Nicaraguan Sandinista revolution. I created works in film, radio, theater, art exhibits, and poetry to support the fight against the Chilean coup. For many years, I worked to end violence against women here and internationally. Since 1968 I have been involved in popularizing the poetry of Roque Dalton, El Salvador’s national poet, and my friend and co-author. Also I work towards restorative justice for him and his family. All along this road of struggle for social justice.
I use my creative energies for the growth of bilingual and arts based education through poetry and storytelling. If you are concerned with these issues and want to learn more about them, explore my web site and buy my books. Together we can make a difference.
