Viva Lerma’s!

The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center is the caretaker of Lerma’s Nite Club, a building on the national register of historic places. The Esperanza is currently in the process of a capitol campaign to raise over 2 million dollars for renovation of the structure. With community support the Esperanza has collected 200,000 dollars worth of donations, in-kind services and money. Community members and buena gente have conducted a local survey in the surrounding neighborhood to identify community needs which also includes identifying best use for the building while still keeping Lerma’s culture and historical significance alive. If you would like to become a monthly donor and join our historic preservation effort please contact the Esperanza @ 210-228-0201 #THISPLACEMATTERS
