Asheville En Espanol

Created to inform our Spanish speaking communities in Asheville and WNC. Regular updates made regarding COVID-19. Created by Ponkhjo Bermejo, Co-Director of BeLoved Asheville, this group is a resource for our Latinx community.

This is what the face of heroes looks like today! We went to give appreciation to the farmers in our area. We want to celebrate our farmers who have ALWAYS been essential and now so more than ever. 

                      Comida De Esperanza

A project of BeLoved Asheville and Asheville En Espanol to provide prepared meals with the flavor and smell of traditional comfort food for families in the midst of this pandemic. Something we have found is that the food has the flavor of hope when it tastes, looks, and smells like your culture. At the same time, we are able to support local businesses that have been collaborating with us. Your help is needed to provide hundreds of workers, mothers and fathers, kids, grandparents, and extended family members with a freshly prepared meal while showing support for local businesses who are struggling through the pandemic and year round.

                        Proud To Be Brown

A new cultural arts and leadership initiative with LatinX youth that involves cultural history, creating communal art pieces and community projects, and learning from local LatinX community leaders.

               Neighborhood Fiesta Project

 After launching a 7 day (14 hours a day) emergency food operation when ICE was raiding our communities, we began a new initiative to build community power and defense systems in neighborhoods where our people feel at home. We are mobilizing leaders in their home communities who know their rights, are learning about community resources including health and legal supports, are practicing sharing their skills and support in their neighborhood. We want everyone to know that they are strong leaders and that they are the ones they have been waiting for.

These leaders will be sharing the information about rights and resources with others that they know. Deeply in the culture of our people is the ethic of sharing. We are unleashing the power of our community, our leadership and our cultural values to keep our community safe and build the kind of world we long to see.

"BeLoved constantly is in the “eye of the storm” providing for those in need and helping us to remember the humanity in all."
