On May 14th, the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance (FMLA) of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) will be hosting 400 Portraits: The Women of Juárez and Chihuahua City. This will be a silent benefit auction of works of art that represent over 400 women who have been killed or have gone missing in Juárez and Chihuahua City, Mexico since 1993. All of the proceeds raised will support Casa Amiga, the sole rape crisis center in the area, in hopes of constructing a shelter for women and children who have survived. This important fundraiser will be held in the Ackerman Grand Ballroom on the UCLA campus at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be obtained for $20 in advance by calling the UCLA Central Ticket Office at (310) 825-2101, or for $25 at the door.
