Pre-registration for Mijente
Take a look around, in your community, amongst your peers, our elders, in the media. Do you see what we see? There is so much possibility, and so much threat. That’s why we’ve formed Mijente and are pulling together Lánzate – The Jump Off – our founding convening this December 12th and 13th in Chicago.
Most of us are hard at work, chambeando, trabajando, both for justice, just to survive, and to thrive. Is it possible to bring together what may look like scattered pieces of us, to sharpen, to connect and ultimately to step up to the present moment and take action that we can look back upon with pride and accomplishment? We think it’s worth a try.
When we say we envision building a organizing hub, a political home for Latinx and Chicanx people, we understand it’s no small feat. No es cualquier cosa.
There’s both commonalities and real differences inside of our community. We want to create room for the multiplicity of cultures, identities, race, nationality and ethnicity. It’s a priority for us to ensure that this is true in this convening. We are prioritizing this in our outreach efforts and we are asking those who are interested in attending to help us meet this goal by filling out an interest form as a part of the registration process.
We know you’ve got big plans to make. We will respond to the first pre-registration interest submissions on November 5th. Upon receiving that confirmation, you’ll be able to complete your registration. We won’t be able to accept everyone who shows interest but we will plan public events during the convening and virtual ways for everyone to participate.
We thank you in advance in helping us hold this politic and practice to create a space that includes all of our community.
