This year's Task Force on the Americas annual dinner celebrates Mexico and the five Latin American countries who gained independence from colonial Spain on September 15 and 16 in the first quarter of the nineteenth century and honors those social movements continuing to struggle for social justice and independence from the US.

Award-winning Marin musicians Jon and Reed Fromer will perform songs of activism and solidarity.

The guest speaker, Lisa Sullivan, is the SOA Watch Latin America Coordinator and lives and works in Venezuela. Lisa has led several Task Force-sponsored delegations to Latin America, often with Fr. Roy Bourgeois, and has introduced participants to many high-level national figures, as well as leaders of popular social movements.

Dinner is $50 per person; a vegan option is available upon request. Seating is limited. Please RSVP by calling 415/924-3227.
