We are the 50th Chicano Moratorium Organizing Committee - a joint effort of various individuals, organizations, and supporters. We are bringing the history and legacy of both the times and the response by the greater Chicano/Raza to our conditions leading up to and including August 29, 1970. Presently we are continuing the fight for peace and liberation -  educating about this iconic event, with the understanding we will move beyond the limitations of the past. The following are points of unity which we have drafted together, must be accepted and embodied while organizing, and leading the 50th commemoration of the Chicano Moratorium.

Our Principles:

RESPECT ONE ANOTHER

This committee will move forward together, respect the decisions we make together. Learning from the past we resolve to unite with: women, African Americans, indigenous/Natives, Asians, LGBTQ, the youth, our elders, veterans, labor unions, refugees, immigrants, migrants, the disabled, and all other oppressed peoples

HISTORICAL ACCURACY

We will correctly use the original demands of the first moratoriums, and expand our demands based on currents ones. These demands include: self-determination; the liberation of women; ending Chicano military drafting into wars like Vietnam; pro-peace; stopping U.S. military intervention; cutting the military budget, ending racism; ending police killings/crimes; proper access to bilingual and quality public education; good jobs; equality for all; access to health care; benefits for veterans and the elderly; housing; political representation; legalization for all; fair and humane immigration;  environmental justice (Exide); supporting the New Green Deal, solidarity with all oppressed nations of the world; stopping Trump’s administration/policies, ending white supremacy, privatization of public, and social services

WOMEN ARE LEADING
