Meet at the City Plaza (Off Main Street AND Beach) at 11:00am
For the last 15 years the Watsonville Brown Berets, along with families of fallen victims and other community members, have organized the Peace and Unity March to promote unity in our barrios. We utilize the medicines and ceremonies of our indigenous roots to help in this healing process as well as the message of social justice and liberation. Over the last 15 years, more than 80 residents of our community have lost their lives to violence. This must end! As a community, it is vital to remain proactive and send a united and positive message into all our homes and neighborhoods. It is important for us and this community to keep this March going. Just this month alone this community has experienced two more deaths due to violence. We can not push this effort forward with out your help. It is up to us to build peace in our community now! We hope to see you there
