Celebrating Corazon 

Coalición de Derechos Humanos' 10th Corazón de Justicia Awards Dinner, Saturday, Nov. 15, 6 p.m., at the El Casino Ballroom, 437 E. 26th St., will honor 12 Tucson activists who have demonstrated their "heart of justice" through their work in the community. The nominees this year are incredible (Javetta Clemmons, Pancho Medina, Miquiztli Valenzuela, Richard Elias, Maryada Vallet, Dalton McClelland, Belem Chagolla, Jose Matus, Lani "Kira" Johnson, Karolina Lopez, María Teresa Velez and Michelle Jahnke Raygada), suggested by a range of local arts, cultural and activist organizations. This isn't your everyday rubber-chicken stuffy awards ceremony since cumbia/ska band Santa Panchita are onboard to supply live music for dancing. Tickets are $35 per person and tables can be purchased for $280. For more information, call 770-1373 or visit derechoshumanosaz.net.
