Who We Are
The México Solidarity Project is powered by those who voluntarily contribute their energy and expertise. It's a labor of love that reflects our love of labor — on both sides of the border. Our participants come from varied backgrounds, but all share a life mission dedicated to ending global capitalist domination and exploitation, especially by the nation that many of us call home, the United States.
The México Solidarity Project brings together activists from various socialist and left organizations and individuals committed to worker and global justice.
We launched the project in 2019 with a tour to several US cities by Morena activist and leftist Javier Bravo. His presentations generated interest in what's happening in México today — and what México's new political scene may mean for the peoples of both countries. Getting real news about México, tour participants agreed, remains next to impossible with a mainstream media that filters information through a US- and corporate-centric lens.
In early 2020, we were ready to roll on a second US tour when Covid-19 suddenly changed all our lives.
In a quick “COVID pivot,” we decided to concentrate on disseminating info and analysis through a short weekly México Solidarity Bulletin, published in both English and Spanish. Each issue now features a Voices interview with an activist from one of México's many social movements or Mexicano and Chicano communities within the US — or the borderlands, a region all its own.
Our México Solidarity Bulletin does more than offer political analysis. We tell stories that illuminate the humanity of the activists we spotlight. We explore with them what they're thinking, feeling, and doing and how their own particular historical and cultural contexts impel and ground their passion for changing our world. To paraphrase Ché, true solidarity will always rest on love.
There are many other organizations which do research, advocacy, and organizing on migration, labor, human rights, and other important issues. We spotlight their work and encourage people to read their analyses and join their campaigns.
Several other organizations regularly share our Bulletins with their members.
