Los Griegos Del Burque

We would like to use the form of communication to reach out to the world as say "Hey, What's up". As the world changes we must learn to adapt without losing the beautiful things that make us who we are as a people. Adaptation without Assimilation.

Good morning!! This is the first morning in a few weeks that I have ten minutes to write a little something. We (Albuquerque Community Schools Project) are about to present on our projects. I will present on the Santa Barbara/Maritneztown Learning Center with a special emphasis on the garden. Yesterday, I spoke about the New Mexico Civic Engagement. Next Wednesday, I will be speaking in Vancouver regarding The Chicano Mexicano Paradigm. Fun stuff. Meriah has been on the road for three weeks and after next weeks travel to Canada, I too will have 3 weeks under my belt. Maybe I will go to the doctor while I am up there!!!! No but serio, we love you all and we will post some pictures on our next blog conversation. Siempre, Joaquin

Dad even let us watch him throw some pottery!!! It was cool to see the Artist Formerly Known as "Dad" in action. He even sent us home with some cool pieces (He charges alot for them now!!) Mom worked wonders with her art with numbers...she did our taxes!!! Thanks Mom!!! Love you guys.
We are heading to DC tomorrow. We are so excited to spend time with Los Griegos de DC. We will take lots of pictures. Following that we will be in Philidelphia. Then Joaquín will take off to Vancuvor, BC for another conference. What a month!!! Love, Mer

Here's a photo of the lovely ladies at the COOL Conference. They cam back with lots of energy and tons of great information. We had a blast. Thanks to Mom & Dad for host a few of us. We enjoyed the home cooking and hospitality. The girls are working on some awesome projects to address poverty, hunger and traditional agricultural sustainability. They are truly inspiring! Love, Mer

Well, this is my first time posting on the blog...this is pretty cool! Joaquin finally gave me the password!
Well the campaign is going well. That is my second job. I am the campaign manager for Moises Gonzales for Bernalillo County Assessor. I know, crazy huh? He's buena gente from around the way and I am proud to be working with him. I'm also working with an awesome team of extremely talented people. Joaquin and I are blessed to have such a strong community.
Monday was the kick-off of the campaign and we had a great turn out, lots of compliments on the event and people noticed the strength in our young progressive team. A few people from the clicka have organized a "Nuestra Gente Caucus" within the party. They will be meeting this weekend in Española. We have a fundraiser coming up on the 11th at the Land Grant hall in Carnué. So we are rocking and rolling.
I also want to give a shot out to my homegirls at La Placita. I will miss you the next couple of weeks. I promise to bring you something back.
I am taking off now to Music City. I am attending a conference at Vandi with 4 young women from UNM. They are wonderful students, scholars and activists. We are attending the Campus Organizing and Outreach League (COOL) Conference and get to visit my mom & dad. I'm looking forward to this weekend. Gotta run I will let you know how it goes. Sorry for the typos. Love, Mer
