Hello!


We hope you are having a great day and would like to make an update on what has been going on with Mi Valedor since our last report. First and most importantly, big thanks to you for joining us in the run with your donation, everyone here appreciates it very much! 

We are happy to announce issue 20, La Gran Tenochtitlán (The Great Tenochtitlan), was released and has been not only a huge success economically but a vehicle for celebration of mexican culture for everyone involved. This fact lead to a rather ambitious presentation of the issue, an event which we decided to name Huateque Mixteque (Mexican Shindig). 

This public event served as a sort of outlet for pre-hispanic traditions to take place but in a 'Mi Valedor style' and current context. In partnership with the independent space ATEA, we offered traditional aztec foods and beverages on a rooftop in the course of a saturday evening, paired with music. Perhaps the most important achievement was the first live transmission of La Voz de la Calle (The Voice of the Streets), a radio program hosted and driven by Mi Valedor's vendors, instructed by Andrés "Ruzo" Vargas from the radio platform Puentes.

In other news, we're equally thrilled to announce issue 21, Vecinos (Neighbours), is on it's way. The vendors themselves chose the theme and took part in lots of the content in it. Through various workshops (as usual) and guidance a very beautiful issue has come together and we are hoping to be able to share it with you in some form as soon as possible! 

Last but not least, just a few weeks ago, the vendors got to attend the 16th edition of the Homeless World Cup, that took place in the Zócalo of Mexico City, where they luckily and by chance got to meet South Korea's The Big Issue editor in chief. The Big Issue is basically the street paper from which Mi Valedor first got it's idea to exist, so, interesting circle closing itself we guess.
