Sat. July 23: In Defense of Indigenous/Raza/Ethnic Studies Run
Saturday July 23 6am
Meet at A Mountain Volcano
(off of Mission, behind Mexican Pottery Store)
In conjunction with the 13th Annual Transformative Education (Raza Studies) conference, Calpolli Texicalli will lead a run from A Mountain in Tucson to Luz Academy (About 5 miles).
There will be simultaneous runs in L.A. and San Bernardino and possibly other cities, including one in Colorado.
Mexican American Studies in Tucson is under attack. Running is one powerful way to fight back. While the battle has been going on since 2006, the running portion is traced back to the summer of 2009 when as a community, we ran from Tucson to Phoenix to defeat one of the bills that sought to eliminate Raza Studies.
Last year, hb 2281 did pass and the battle is on. Read other posts on this website re this battle this battle: http://drcintli.blogspot.com/
The struggle to defend Indigenous/Raza/Ethnic Studies includes a legal and political strategy. This run is for ourselves. It is to strengthen us physically and spiritually. Please join us.
