The future is sweeter when YOU vote!

The Jolt Make Art Committee is protesting the end of the #DACA program with a pan dulce butterfly art installation at the Texas State Capitol. Join us to call for an end to deportations ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾You’ll also have a chance to hear from #Dreamers and register to vote, so that this November we can elect leaders who will protect Latino & immigrant communities.

The Monarch butterfly is symbolic of migration as it’s known to originate in Mexico and migrate across borders throughout its life-cycle. We’re making a pan dulce butterfly to symbolize a piece of Latino culture. Unlike migrants seeking better lives, such as DACA recipients and their parents, our food & culture are more readily claimed as American — only some things can easily cross borders! This installation will show our community we are still fighting for representation and recognition.
