message from Encuentro5:
The year 2015 has been an unforgettable and particularly difficult one re human rights violations, racist attacks on people of color and immigrants to name but a few of the oppressive actions in violation of our human rights to exist on this planet.
January marks the Birthday of Martin Luther King whose life was taken while in the struggle against racism and war. He was one of several warriors who led movements during the "Civil Rights Era" who fought for human rights for all workers, immigrants, people of color, women and children and LGBT. There are many warriors too numerous to list here.
Please join us at Encuentro 5 to commemorate fallen heroines and heroes of the struggle for human rights and celebrate our affirmation to continue the building and strengthening of human rights and anti oppression movements to victory in 2016!
Bring your music, poetry, song and stories to share!
