Even as summer approaches, CoFiA members and friends are planning our fall fiesta to be held at The Legion Hall, 399 Broad Avenue, Leonia.
The theme for this year’s very special event is FIESTA JUSTICIA–Aqui y Alla, in honor of Guatemalan Independence Day on September 15, and a very special U.S. election on November 8.
In both countries justice and democratic principles are under fire. In Guatemala thousands of indigenous people marched to the capital this spring, protesting the destruction of water, air, land and human rights by international and national corporations. In the U.S., a hard-fought election campaign is seeing powerful business and political interests being challenged by groups struggling to bring the voices of the dispossessed and powerless into the discussion.
FIESTA JUSTICIA will recognize these struggles even as we celebrate the wonders of being alive, being together, and working to create a better world for everyone, rich and poor, documented and undocumented.
Watch for more information on these pages, and mark your calendars now for SEPTEMBER 23, 2016!!
