MEXICANA MAGIC: Young and inspiring, Sophie Cruz is now also a part of San Jose with 'Sophie Holds the World Together'

San Jose is now home to a new mural, Sophie Holding the World Together. The 7-year-old Los Angeles native Sophie Cruz is a daughter of immigrant parents from Oaxaca, Mexico. She made headlines in 2015 after crossing a police barrier during Pope Francis’ visit to Washington, D.C. Last year, she gave a moving speech during the Women’s March. In a collaboration between El Mac and The Propeller Group, Sophie appears on the mural as a symbol of resolve and hope. This event, celebrating the mural’s completion, will feature live music and family-friendly activities.
