Mass incarceration is one of the biggest human rights issues of our time. This flag is in honor of our shared struggles as Mexican people, and descendants of the enslaved in America. Honoring us as we survive being targeted by police and ICE as “criminals” and “illegals”. Words used to justify discrimination, disappearance, mistreatment, and murder by this country. It is a flag honoring our resilience in the face of oppression. It is a flag honoring our beauty as a people. It is a flag honoring our personhood, our potential, our families, and our human and civil rights. It is a flag encouraging us to fight and win together. Reminding us that we are one blood.
It is my wish, that through it all this piece provides warmth, happiness, and protection to all of us.
