Ever since 2006 Voces de la Frontera has led a massive march and celebration on May 1, the international Day for Workers. We’ve focused on the critical role of Latinx in Wisconsin’s economy, but tens of thousands of people of all kinds have participated each year.
COVID-19 got in the way this year.
We’ll still have the march, but it’s delayed until the Democratic National Convention later this summer, health conditions permitting.
In place of the May 1 outdoor event, Voces will hold a 90-minute virtual celebration from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm on Friday evening, May 1, 2020 on Voces’ Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/VocesdelaFronteraWI/
The event will celebrate Voces’ new building, at 733 W. Historic Mitchell St., where we plan to move in during July. A lot of work is needed to prepare the building and we’re launching a donation drive to raise $180,000. [Click here to donate.]
The celebration will include music, poetry, testimonies from people about our recent successful election work, our COVID-19 support for essential workers, our youth activities and more.
