La comunidad Mexicana, Mexico Americana y Latino Americana nos oponemos al racismo institucional que continua oprimiendo al pueblo en general, la tolerancia de un pueblo tiene un límite y ese límite a excedido a su máxima capacidad otorgar el derecho a unos cuantos de abusar del poder y darles licencia para terminar con la vida de un ser humano a llegado a su fin, el liderazgo social y político que hemos elegido para estar al frente de nuestras instituciones gubernamentales no ha honrado el voto de confianza que les otorgamos al elegirlos al cargo que hoy ejercen. Este es el momento más oportuno de levantar la voz y hacer valer nuestros derechos constitucionales civiles y humanos a la vez mostrar que tenemos el poder cívico de elegir y remover a quien no cumpla con su cometido para el cual fue elegido.
Las próximas elecciones están a la vuelta de la esquina aprovechemos esta oportunidad para decidir quien deberá de estar al frente y cuidar de nuestras necesidades, de guardar la paz civil y hacer respetar los derechos humanos de toda la comunidad.
Nos solidarizamos con nuestros hermanos de la comunidad Afroamericanay condenamos los hechos de violencia de los cuales siguen siendo objeto.
Este es un momento de solidaridad y unión
Todos somos la solución¡¡¡
Centro Cultural Mexicano opposes the institutional racism that continues to oppress our black and brown communities. It is wrong that a few in positions of power are given the right to unjustly terminate the life of a human being. Our political leaders that have been elected to represent us, and the leaders of our public institutions, have not honored the responsibility that the position requires of them.
This is the moment to raise our voices loud and clear in support of our constitutional rights, civil rights, and human rights. This is the time that we can show our civic power to remove those from office who do not fulfill the commitment for which they were elected. The next elections are around the corner, and we can decide who is going to be at the forefront of serving and respecting our communities of color.
We are in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters and we condemn the continuing acts of violence against them.
This is a time to come together in solidarity and unity!
