June 25-28th Philadelphia, PA
June 24-28th Sand Jose, CA
June 25, Tijuana, Mex
In 2015, for the first time in history, our movements for genuine change will gather in several core locations. Activists from the United States and Mexico will convene in Tijuana on June 25, 2015 as part of the 2015 U.S. Social Forum — a multi-city convergence of activists, organizers, artists and writers from many diverse social justice and resistance movements. The Forum this year takes place in San Jose CA, Philadelphia PA, Jackson MS, Houston TX, and now Tijuana, Mexico.
The Mexico event will combine an outdoors opening plenary “session of unity and solidarity” involving an expected 150 activists from both countries with day-long work sessions (called “mesas” in Latin America) on migration, workers conditions, mega-projects (including fracking), water and land. There will also be participation by several singers and spoken word artists from Mexico and the U.S.
