The Teaching Rebellion speaking tour aims to foster dialogue among activists from Oaxaca and the U.S. around organizing strategies and movement building utilizing the experience of Oaxacan organizers, who brought together labor, indigenous, women's, youth, and neighborhood organizations to build a powerful movement for democracy and accountability. Speaker Gustavo Vilchis will join us from Mexico, accompanied by co-facilitator and translator Melissa Mundt to speak about the book, present art and photography from Oaxaca and promote discussion and reflection on the former and current political climate in Oaxaca and its relevance to organizing in their own communities.

Mexican Speaker: Gustavo Vilchis, a native of neighboring state of Guerrero arrived in Oaxaca as an independent photographer, seeking to cover the people's resistance and provide coverage alternative to that offered by the commercial media. He collaborated extensively with the Liga Mexicana de Derechos Humanos (Mexican League of Human Rights). Many of his photographs and his testimony are featured in the book.
