 Join us in a celebration of the extraordinary life and political activism of Elizabeth “Betita” Sutherland Martínez. On the occasion of Betita’s 88th birthday, Social Justice Journal is releasing a special issue featuring some of Betita’s unpublished works and more, and the December 15 celebration will feature readings by some of the contributors to the issue, alongside music, slideshows, and refreshments.

The event, co-sponsored by Social Justice Journal, Betita Fan Club, and Galeria de la Raza, is free and open to the public.

Betita Martinez was a long term resident of the Mission District, but moved a couple of years ago to a nursing home.
