Day of the Dead in Chiapas
with the Center for Global Justice
For the past 4 years, the Center for Global Justice has organized educational trips to Chiapas. From October 29 to November 6, a group of no more than 10 people will be traveling to this incredible region once again.
Our trips are always focused on learning about the lives and culture of the people living in regions we think are in the forefront of social justice movements. The majority of the population in Chiapas are part of an indigenous culture that is rich in traditions. For generations they have lived in relative harmony with their environment, showing great respect for the land that provided them with a deep sense of place. Their way of life has been under attack for many years and in reaction, the Zapatista movement has grown to a place of prominence in the arena of protecting indigenous rights. The struggle continues today, and the lessons learned from this region's history is of great importance in the global fight for ensuring there is a future for not only indigenous peoples, but for the vast majority of the worlds population.

We refuse to accept a world where the vast majority of people suffer hunger and want, where the vast majority of people have little or no control over their lives, where the vast majority of people live in fear of aggression.
The Center for Global Justice is a multi-cultural, democratically organized service, learning, and research center. Through our support of the social and solidarity economy, our public education programs, and our research collaborations we seek to empower ordinary people to work to create a more socially and economically just world.
