City of Lancaster, Church World Service Announce Artist Selected for Welcoming Mural
Central Pennsylvania Artist Claudia Rojas Will Work with Community to Create “Welcoming” Mural

LANCASTER, Pa., May 9, 2022 – The City of Lancaster and Church World Service (CWS) Lancaster’s Welcoming Mural Advisory Council have selected Claudia Rojas, a Cuban-born Lebanon-based artist, to lead the design and implementation of a mural that captures Lancaster’s spirit of welcoming.

Rojas migrated to the United States in 2015 and describes herself as a mixed media artist and illustrator. She has developed and taught an art program for unaccompanied migrant children and has worked on other community-based projects to establish spaces for inclusion and representation. Her work addresses migration, transculturation, community, and identity. She holds a BA in Social Communication from the University of Havana and completed a fellowship in Afro-Cuban art research at the University of Morelos in Mexico.

“Art, and especially the so visible and ever-present public art, is a call to identification, to articulating the richly colored tapestry of our community, where we are all intertwined, and we build something better than the sum of its parts,” states Rojas. “It is my intention to lift the voices of those who might have felt voiceless, as we show through art that everyone is indeed welcome, not despite of, but precisely because everyone is unique.”

Rojas will work with Project Manager Shauna Yorty, local veteran muralist and community advocate, to host community engagement opportunities to gather input from Lancaster refugees, immigrants, and long-time residents about what “Welcome” means to the community to inform the design. The first public engagement event will be held later this month and the second will take place during Open Streets on June 19.

The finished mural will be installed on the western wall of Ganse Apothecary, 355 W. King St., at the four-way intersection of Charlotte, Manor, Strawberry, and King Streets. With community volunteers, the painting of the mural will coincide with Welcoming Week, which runs from Sept. 10-19, when cities all over the country celebrate the crucial role they play in welcoming new neighbors.

The City’s Department of Neighborhood Engagement, in partnership with Church World Service (CWS) Lancaster, and Landis Homes were awarded funding to create a community-informed mural that captures Lancaster’s spirit of welcome and inclusiveness. For its entire history, Lancaster has provided safe haven to immigrants fleeing persecution and disasters across the world. From the Amish in the 18th century to Afghans this past summer, we’ve consistently heeded the call for welcome. During the height of the Syrian refugee crisis, the BBC named Lancaster “the Refugee Capital of the US” and the NY Times published a feature article about the ways immigrants have revitalized the social, cultural, and economic life of our area. Three years ago, Lancaster became the first city in Pennsylvania and just the 12th city in the country to become a Certified Welcoming City.

Funding for the mural was generously provided by the City of Lancaster, Lancaster County Community Foundation, Landis Homes and Penn Square Rotary Club. Two Dudes Painting in Cabbage Hill will provide materials.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MAY 6, 2022 LANCASTER, PA – The Equity Council announces $50,000 in grants that will support the work of 13 Equity Partners creating change and opportunities for local BIPOC communities.

From enhancing maternal health opportunities and supporting mental health for young men of color, to creation of culturally-relevant news and information sources and celebrating local elders, these projects are creating direct impact for communities of color in Lancaster County. Each partner will receive between $2000 – 5000 to support their work.

The Equity Council convened in the fall of 2021. Recognizing the resiliency, tenacity and talent within Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Immigrant communities; and understanding the deep inequities both in community and within philanthropy; Xavier Garcia-Molina created the Equity Fund and Equity Council in partnership with the Lancaster County Community Foundation. Co-chairs Garcia-Molina and Kareena Rios, as well as Founding members Christopher Aviles, Julia Cao, LaRock Hudson, and Norma Vazquez created a process that directly informs where and how the dollars from this fund will make the most equitable impact in our community. The Equity Fund launched with a $100,000 investment from the Community Foundation. These are the first grants from that fund.

The Equity Council designed and led the process for the Equity Grants. These grants are extraordinary because, for the first time, local leaders of color are guiding funding decisions that support communities of color.

The Equity Council approached the selection process with deep intention. “We want to bring equity into the space of philanthropy,” explains Garcia-Molina. Many traditional funding applications require in-depth written submissions detailing project goals and outcomes. “For people not familiar with that approach, or who do not have a trusted relationship with the funder, the application itself becomes a barrier for strong and important work being supported,” he said.

From the beginning, the Council committed to shifting the approach for how people access financial and grant support. The first invitation for submissions offered a range of options for applicants including:

Sample applications. Applicants could access sample documents with concrete examples of specific details and successful applications.
Language support. Applications used familiar, accessible language instead industry-specific technical terms. They also offered the option to apply in multiple languages.
Video interviewing. For those less comfortable with written communication, the Council provided coaching sessions during the application process and encouraged dialogue with applicants’ about their project and goals.
After hosting online information sessions about the grant opportunity, the Equity Council received 23 submissions. “We learned that people felt comfortable with us and participating in this process,” Garcia-Molina said. “We will continue to offer a range of ways for people to learn about, and participate in, funding opportunities in the future.”

The Equity Council sees the initial funding as an important first step on a pathway to a more equitable approach to local philanthropy. “How do we share power with people doing the work in our community while systemic change is happening?” asks Garcia-Molina. “We think this is one way to help lead that change.”

The Community Foundation continues to learn with — and from — the leadership of the Equity Council and is honored to walk beside the Equity Partners as they continue to create impact that will strengthen our entire community.
