Mexican and Central American Independence Day Celebration
A New Grito for Change

On September 16, 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo delivered the Grito de Dolores, a declaration of independence from Spanish colonialism; and a call for the abolition of African slavery, for an end to the caste system exploiting Indians, and for social and economic reform.

Join us to support a delegation traveling in October to Nogales, Arizona and Sonora, and Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua.

► to participate in a national convergence at the border to highlight the militarization of the southern border and the U.S.-sponsored militarization of Central American borders, and the human rights crisis of an unjust immigration system
