Mr. Tupac Enrique,
The students of Central High School M.E.Ch.A. excitedly extend this
invitation to lead the Sunrise Ceremony and speak at one or two of the
breakout sessions at the 3rd Phoenix Union High School District
M.E.Ch.A. Conference on September 14, 2012. The theme of this year’s
conference is Our History: Mi Voz.
We are very interested in hearing about you, how you learned to organize and what you have experienced as you’ve led Tonatierra and Los Comités de Defensa Del Barrio. We are also very interested in learning about the Doctrine of Discovery, decolonization and our rights as Indigenous Peoples. We also welcome any advice on how we can use our student voices to advocate for ourselves and our communities.
