This series of VDLF Historical Box Sets are now out of print.
With 46 items created from 2014 to 2019, the Voces de la Frontera (VDLF) Historical Box Set features art from a variety of activist artists and Milwaukee community members used in picket signs on muslin and paper, posters, organizing flyers, and other political and VDLF ephemera. A flash drive of numerous images and videos related to VDLF is also included in the box set.
VDLF is Wisconsin’s leading immigrant rights organization serving the Latinx community in Milwaukee, WI, but also active nationally and internationally. The primary use and purpose of the material in this box set was to amplify the marches in the streets and VDLF’s organizing in the community. The box set includes a diverse variety of materials, some long out-of-print, some from other allied social justice organizations, and some that are still used in protest, lobbying, and educational actions.
This boxset documents art in action; it is an important historical research resource for graphic, print, and design arts; communication studies; social justice studies; Latin American history, and Labor History.
Voces de la Frontera is. Voces was established in Milwaukee in 1998 and now has over a dozen chapters throughout the state of Wisconsin.
