ABOUT THE GAME

Censotería is a modern twist on the traditional Mexican game of Lotería. Angie Sanchez of La Luz Center grew up playing Lotería with her family. The fond memories of the original game bringing community together, inspired her to create Censotería as an educational tool to raise awareness about the importance of the 2020 Census & presidential election. This project was made possible with support from the Latino Community Foundation’s Just Recovery efforts in Northern California and the Design Action Collective. The Just Recovery Partnership is made up of 10 Latino-led nonprofits who are using healing, culture and arts to inspire civic engagement.
