Lánzate - December 1-2, 2018 - San Antonio, TX
This December, we are gathering our gente in San Antonio, Texas: a place that is a microcosm of the attacks our Latinx and Chicanx communities are facing, but also of our resistance and spirit of sobrevivencia.
Lánzate is a national convening organized by Mijente, a digital and grassroots hub for Latinx and Chicanx organizing and movement building. The convening brings together Latinx and Chicanx identified change-makers who seek to build social movement and community that is pro-Black, pro-LGBTQ, pro-worker, pro-immigrant, pro-planet rooted in self determination. The gathering features workshops and strategy sessions across issue and geography, art, music, connection and exchange. This year the conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas.
**Please note we will have an optional meet & greet for Lazante participants on Friday, November 30th at 5:30pm at Esperanza Peace and Justice Center, as well as a Mijente members gathering on Friday afternoon for those who can make it. More details to come.
