Gabriel Hernández Tinajero

After carefully reviewing the 134 applications received to the calls for Community Leadership (75) and New Social Actors (59), we want to publicize the results and the process we followed to give sustenance to the final selection of projects supported by Levantemos México.

On September 2017, Diego Luna, Gael García Bernal, and Documental Ambulante launched the fundraising campaign Levantemos México as an immediate response to the earthquakes that affected the central and southeast regions in Mexico. By the end of 2017, the campaign had raised over 28.5 million pesos thanks to the generosity of over 15,000 backers from all over the world. The Levantemos México fund is destined to reconstruct the most affected communities by the earthquakes.

“The campaign was born out of the hope of living in a country with less inequality, where your neighbor knows that his or her existence matters, where their loss is our loss.”

- Diego Luna

Purpose

The Levantemos México fund seeks to strengthen the communities affected by the September 2017 earthquakes from a human rights perspective, enhancing their own capacities to define and implement actions that will allow them to recover their lifestyles and rethink their future based on the experience.

The fund also seeks to document and make visible citizen efforts, in order to promote sustained solidarity with the people who will continue to rebuild their communities in the coming years, and strengthen the incidence ability of social organizations in national reconstruction actions.

“As the ground shook, the call became urgent. Horizontality manifested itself and we decided to help each other out. There is a common saying: ‘you contribute when you can.’ After the earthquake, we were able to say, ‘you contribute, even if you can’t.’”

- Gael García Bernal
