Description

Day of the Dead, Ramon Ramirez's b-day, Mariachi, tamales, & great company all in one day! $40 per ticket!

PCUN’s Annual Celebration is the place to catch up with friends and allies of the farmworker movement, enjoy authentic Mexican food and Latin music, & learn about what we’ve been up to.

This year’s celebration falls on the famous Mexican holiday “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead). It also happens to be Ramon Ramirez’s (PCUN President) birthday. And to cap it off, 2017 is our 40th year of movement building work. So come and enjoy some pan de muerto (bread of the dead) with champurrado (warm thick Mexican drink), tamales (no translation needed), great music and stories, and most importantly great company.

A summary of 40 years of movement building

40 years ago this summer we embarked on a journey towards justice and equality for Oregon farmworkers. We’ve made tremendous progress, but some things remain the same. It was 1977 when we founded our movement’s first organization, the Willamette Valley Immigration Project (now the Farmworker Service Center), in response to an increase of ICE activity. At the time the WVIP provided community organizing, legal advice and legal representation to undocumented workers. This work has become a priority once more. And this time around, thanks to you we have a strong movement resisting and rising above the hate.
