“Arizona’s ban of Mexican American Studies is heading back to the Arizona Supreme Court Monday, June 26 – June 30, 2017. That means the Librotraficante caravan is heading back to Arizona with a new shipment of banned books. Houston activists will make the 1,000+ mile ride once again to draw attention to Arizona’s prohibition, to restock the underground libraries they formed during their 2012 Caravan, and to share updates on the advancement of Ethnic Studies in each state they pass through.
Scheduled stops include San Antonio & El Paso, Texas, Mesilla and Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Tucson, AZ. Supporters can donate to help defray caravan costs, donate banned books, organize solidarity events, or join the Librotraficantes on the caravan. Details are available at www.Librotraficante.com, Tony@Librotraficante.com, or (713) 867-8943.”
