Community Dedication and Celebration of Los Seis Sculpture

Join UMAS y MEXA de CU Boulder to celebrate the dedication of the community-created Los Seis Sculpture in front of TB-1! The sculpture was created to honor the lives of six Chicano student activists and CU Boulder alumni: Una Jaakola, Reyes Martínez, Neva Romero, Florencio Granado, Francisco Dougherty, and Heriberto Terán.
