***ESPAÑOL ABAJO***

Join us for the Rio Bravo Action Camp, four days of direct action training in the Rio Grande Valley borderlands of Texas this coming February 15th – 18th. Take action with us to STOP the border wall!

This action camp is led by organizers from the Rio Grande Valley,  organizers from frontline communities, and by others who have been accomplices in the fight for liberation. We are Indigenous, Black, Queer, Women, Non-Binary, Femme, People of Color committed to dismantling systems that seek to continuously enforce the violent militarization of our communities. We are a group of dedicated land defenders and water protectors who do this work for our ancestors, future generations, and all creatures who belong here. This camp is being led with permission and in conjunction with the Carrizo/Comecrudo Tribe, whose ancestral lands - the esto’k g’na-  will be impacted by the border wall. We say #ChingaTuMuro and are building a collective force to tear down all walls that keep us divided and disconnected.

...AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We have already secured some funding but are in need of more to run operations for the four days.  ALL funds will go towards creation of the camp (food, supplies, etc.) and to future efforts to sustain anti-border wall initiatives.

The Rio Bravo Action Camp is a four-day direct action camp taking place from Friday, February 15th – Monday, February 18th in the Rio Grande Valley region of Texas, on the ancestral land of the Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe the esto’k g’na. The camp is free to all participants, and food, lodging, and trainings are provided at no cost. Limited travel stipends will be available for people who need support with transportation to attend the camp. We will provide Spanish and English translation for all trainings and workshops, and will work hard to make the camp accessible to all.

The goal of the camp is to build the skills of participants and overall capacity for direct action. We are prioritizing participants from the borderlands who are marginalized, underrepresented and come from front-line communities. We highly encourage people of color, indigenous, first nation, women, women of color, 2SLGBTQIA, and those with limited financial resources to apply.

The camp is hosted by Another Gulf Is Possible, the Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe of Texas, the Rio Grande Valley chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, and the RGV No Border Wall Movement.
