Who: M.E.Ch.A de San Diego State University (SDSU) and the University of California San Diego (UCSD)
When: April 20th-22nd, 2012
Where: San Diego, CA
Why: To serve as a bridge amongst Mechistas and those collectively struggling and sacrificing to survive in various collectives, organizations, groups, and talking circles of different worlds. The bridge we make to those various collective, organizations, groups, and talking circles for this Encuentro do not rely on relaying a single ideology, organizational affiliation, or one fixed identity. Rather, making the efforts for work, land, housing, food, health care, education, independence, freedom, democracy, justice, and peace by those in San Diego available as way to (re)learn, share, and organize movements to articulate responses in all our respective spaces.
