freedom-schoolThis summer marks the 50th Anniversary of the Mississippi Freedom Summer and Freedom Schools – a historic campaign to create change in the deep South through civic engagement and to address the racial inequalities in the school system.

Drawing from this history, Fuerza del Valle is proud to announce it’s first encuentro of worker leaders and community allies to bring an end to labor abuses and promote equity in the Rio Grande Valley. The encuentro will take place July 12th, 2014 from 10am-2pm in Alamo, TX.

Because of limited space and resources, we are asking ALL allies who want to attend to apply here. Deadline for applications is July 3rd, 2014. If you cannot join us, we are already looking for a larger space and resources for future encuentros.
Join us in the fight for dignity and respect – apply today!
