Thank you so much! Will see you tomorrow!

 

“En el Centro Jornalero tenemos la costumbre de festejar la independencia de México, al igual que la de Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, y Honduras, con una rica comida y convivio y nuestras amistades de la comunidad y de las universidades.

También aprovechamos para aprender nuestra historia y vincular las luchas históricas con las actuales. Se le hace la cordial invitación a cada uno y una de ustedes!

#upcomingevents #markyourcalendars every year we celebrate#fiestaspatrias at the #PEOC #daylabor center, with food, music, and community. Since #Mexico#Guatemala#ElSalvador#Nicaragua,#CostaRica, and #Honduras all share the same #independenceday, it is a good opportunity to build bridges between the #Mexican and#CentralAmerican communities, as well as the #Chicanx and u.s.-born communities. And since #independence was (and is) a protracted#struggle, it gives us a chance to root ourselves in our history and connect to our current struggles. So please swing by beginning at 10:am on Tuesday #September15 and join us!”
