This coffee table book is the result of the Corioli Institute’s work in the fishing community of El Manglito, Baja California Sur, Mexico that is affected by cartel violence and environmental pollution. Engaging with children and youth, we chose a publication format that tells the story and everyday life of the community in their own words. Our team led a series of data collection workshops, brought in consultants, and funded the book’s production for the community. The project’s novel participatory, receptive, collaborative approach to trust building and social cohesion within El Manglito resulted in a strong sense of identity, efficacy, and pride among the youth of the community.
