EVENT DATE: Sep 23, 2017
Over the last 30 years, CRLN has convened Chicago-area Latin America solidarity groups to organize Pedal for Peace. As allies with campesinos in Central and South America, we work together to advance communities' goals of education, health care, civil rights, and access to land to support themselves. Along the way, CRLN allied itself with immigrant rights groups, who have also joined in Pedal for Peace. Funds raised by the CRLN team will be used to further its education and action work to dismantle militarism, neoliberal economic and harsh immigration enforcement practices, and other forms of state and institutional violence, and to promote sustainable economies, just relationships and human dignity.
