To the Sisters & Brothers of Ferguson & St. Louis, MO
To Hands Up United, Organization for Black Struggle, Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, and your partners in Ferguson
To all communities struggling against state violence

We appreciate your invitation to march in solidarity together this weekend in protest of the brutal violence on behalf of those entrusted to protect us. Unfortunately, the killing of Michael Brown is not unique. Instead, many communities of color have bore the brunt of a militarized state that consistently protects the few at the expense of the many. As movements across the country have repeatedly said, this is a systemic problem, not an accidental incident. And as systemic ills need holistic and revolutionary cures, we can only begin to respond by acting collectively and resolutely. We respect your dignified struggle to come together and demand justice.

Sep 29 - Oct 10 (OH, MI, IN, Chicago): "We Question While We Walk: Building Community through Popular Education in Albany Park, Chicago" with Isabel Valenzuela and Tony Nelson of the Centro Autonomo. Isabel and Tony will share lessons from their work in popular education and the experience of its day to day trials and victories. Both organize with the Centro Autonomo - a community center in the immigrant neighborhood of Albany Park, Chicago. The Centro is home to a bilingual adult high school and the foundation of the Mexico Solidarity Network's transnational organizing. Their talk will have important lessons for anyone interested in immigrant rights, radical pedagogy, community building, and the fight to change the world.
