2017 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Erika Guadalupe Núñez is a queer immigrant, artist, and community organizer for immigrant rights in Philadelphia. After emigrating from Mexico at a young age, Erika remained undocumented until she received her green card in 2013. As an artist, Erika's goals are to preserve and lift up the histories of her people while also expanding to include new narratives that speak to who we are as a community. Erika's visual art pays homage to her culture and upbringing while simultaneously serving as a tool for social change.
