We’re honored to have played a role in this wonderful tribute.
More than 200 people came together at the University of Colorado Boulder campus on Friday to honor the legacy of six Chicano activists who were slain in two separate bombings by dedicating a sculpture created in their memory. Family members of the deceased stood next to current and former students, faculty and community members, commemorating the activists with traditional ceremonial practices and sharing memories from the time of the bombings.
Currently the sculpture is approved under the Campus Use of University Facilities for a six-month temporary installation. However, UMAS y MEXA and Baetz are pushing for the sculpture to stay permanently. Boulder City Council signed a letter to make the statue “a permanent tribute” to the slain activists. UMAS y MEXA is also working to pass a resolution in CU Student Government in support of permanence.
