A woman sits on a window sill playing the jarana

Yared Portillo, an activist from Philadelphia, uses the jarana, a small guitar-like musical instrument, and son jarocho, a type of music from Veracruz, Mexico, in her community work. During protests, Portillo brings her jarana and plays music as demonstrators chant.
