Esperanza was founded in 1987 with the dream of creating a place where people working for peace and justice in San Antonio and around the world could come together to share our vision, our resources, and our hope for the future.
Today, decades later, Esperanza continues this work of bringing people together across our differences to work for justice and build a better world. While this work calls for protests, press conferences, and public speeches in front of City Hall, it also requires music, poetry, paintings, theater performances, and intimate conversations on front porches and at kitchen tables throughout our city.
The work for peace, justice, cultural grounding and preservation belongs to all of us, and we all have something to offer.
