Alejandria Fights Back / La Lucha de Alejandria! tells the story of nine-year old Alejandria, an Afro-Latina girl for whom home isn’t just the apartment she shares with Mami and her abuela, but the whole neighborhood. It’s the place where Ms. Beatrice makes yummy picos; Ms. Alicia sells flowers with her little dog, Duende; Mr. Amir has his corner store. But lately rent prices are going up, and people in el barrio are leaving because they can no longer afford their homes. Then the worst thing happens: Mami receives an eviction notice. Alejandria knows it isn’t fair, and she’s not about to give up and leave. Join Alejandria as she brings her community together to fight and save their neighborhood!
