Melanie Cervantes

In 2007 Melanie Cervantes cofounded Dignidad Rebelde, a graphic arts collaboration that produces screen prints, political posters, and multimedia projects that are grounded in Third World and indigenous movements that build people’s power to transform the conditions of fragmentation, displacement, and loss of culture that result from histories of colonialism, genocide, and exploitation. Dignidad Rebelde’s purpose is to translate the stories of struggle and resistance into artwork that can be put back into the hands of the communities who inspire it. Melanie currently works full-time as a senior program officer at the Akonadi Foundation, which supports movement building organizations working to finally put an end to the structural racism that lies at the heart of social inequity in the United States.
