J. Gonzo, Claire Napier, and Bernardo Brice and I have finished our part. Now it's time to share the rest of the story with the world. We're back to publish the last chapter of La Voz De M.A.Y.O. This will be a full color, 24-page comic book detailing the important accomplishments by my great-grandfather Ramon Jaurigue and the Mexican, American, Yaqui, and Others organization. 

I always try to offer something completely unique for every campaign. We are teaming up with CREAM Forever to make Si Se Puede tote bags and 3X3 iron-on-patches exclusive to this Kickstarter. But the LatinX hat has been resurrected for one last time.

The official story

 La Voz De M.A.Y.O. is the true story of Ramon Jaurigue, an orphan and WWII veteran who co-founded the Mexican, American, Yaqui, and Others (M.A.Y.O.) organization, which successfully lobbied the Tucson City Council to improve living and working conditions for members of the local Pascua Yaqui tribe. Largely due to Ramon’s activism, both in M.A.Y.O. in and with Model Cities Program, Yaqui were successfully integrated into the expanding metropolis of Tucson: families bought property, roads and sidewalks were built, and sewage systems installed. Ramon and his colleagues even founded a night school to help adults learn English and established the region’s first low-cost clinic to offer birth control.

Utilizing newspaper clippings, interviews with surviving MAYO members, and Ramon’s authored articles, La Voz De M.A.Y.O. dramatizes the remarkable life and achievements of my great-grandfather—and in so doing, tells the story not just of a single man, but of a family, a tribe, a nation.

Risks and challenges

La Voz De MAYO is not only about my family's history, but, this is the history of a tribe of people and my hometown: Tucson, AZ. My graphic memoir is about people of color; specifically, Native Americans and Mexican Americans that are finally getting documented in the history books. It's important to me to publish something that will inform and empower people that look like to look like me.

We are making sure the artists, letterer, and copy editor are compensated.
