Fifth Encuentro

2016 NYC Encuentro for Humanity and Against Displacement

Letter from “FIERCE” to the Fifth Encuentro for Humanity and Against Displacement

The FIERCE community joins other people, organizations, and communities in resisting displacement in all of its forms and in supporting the Encuentro for Humanity and Against Displacement!

FIERCE and Queer, Trans, and Gender Nonconforming Youth of Color in the streets of New York and across the land and circling the globe rise up with you in the noble work of creatively resisting false borders, dehumanization, separation of families, labor exploitation, gentrification of our communities, and the displacement of any human life!

We join you in calling on others of good heart and conscience, who are committed to justice today and every day to follow this one!

Letter from “CAAAV - Organizing Asian Communities” to the Fifth Encuentro for Humanity and Against Displacement

CAAAV's Chinatown Tenants Union has been fighting against displacement and gentrification for more than 10 years and we are very honored to have such a strong allyship with Movimiento por Justicia del Barrio.

We admire Movimiento's work in building true grassroots leadership and fighting for justice not only in our backyard in New York City, but also international justice because all our struggles are connected.

Our members often look back fondly on our exchange back in 2014; we continue to be inspired by the women leaders of Movimiento and in particular, their outspoken children who spoke up eloquently in both languages (English/Spanish) about the need to unite and fight against bad landlords and a government that facilitates displacement of our low-income immigrant communities. We hope to continue working with you to build the power of our communities.

En solidaridad!

Invitation to Fifth Encuentro

An invitation from Movement for Justice in El Barrio:

To members and families of organizations, community members, and people of good heart, who are resisting in their communities.

To all those fighting for dignity and against displacement & rezoning.

To those who fight for humanity.

NYC ENCUENTRO
FOR HUMANITY AND AGAINST DISPLACEMENT

An Encuentro is a space for people to come together; it is a gathering. An Encuentro is not a meeting, a panel or a conference; it is a way of sharing as another form of doing politics: from below and to the left. It is a place where we can all speak, we will all listen, and we can all learn. It is a place where we can share the many different struggles that make us one.

EL BARRIO, NYC
SUNDAY, JANUARY 31, 3:00 PM
