This year Tlalana began working in the state of Aguascalientes, in western Mexico, and in Milpa Alta, a semi-rural area in Mexico City, while continuing with the groups with which we had already been working.
Tlalana Aguascalientes comprises two collectives of promoters of different ages, from different neighborhoods and with different interests, but sharing the same goal: to work and carry out projects that impact positively on their community. "La Hydra" Community Radio is made up of young people from the colony of Insurgentes, in Aguascalientes, who love music and who are interested in defending and spreading urban cultures. On the other hand, a few miles away there is the collective "Taller Guadalupe"
In Milpa Alta, other collectives have been formed in the villages of San Bartolomé Xicomulco, San Pedro Actopan, Villa Milpa Alta and Tecómitl. The first of these is made up of 6 women. This group is about to be consolidated due to the constancy of these women, who have not given up and decided to make a significant difference in their community. Xicomulco is a small group but high in spirit and enthusiasm for seeing their village renewed. The second task force is gathered in Tecómitl, made up of young people from several nearby communities such as San Pedro Actopan and Villa Milpa Alta. The Tecómitl group formally began the training sessions on May 26th. Since then we have been recurrently assisted by five young people with whom we have managed to carry out four training workshops.
