Bracero Workers Remembered at Placita Olvera

I recently co-presented a resolution in Council naming September 29 as "International Bracero Day" for the City of Los Angeles. My father was a Bracero worker during the 1950's and 60's and I truly believe it's important to recognize the contributions of so many families in our American history. There will be a FREE photography exhibit at the Mexican Cultural Institute Gallery at El Pueblo Cultural Monument titled "Recollections from Yesterday and Today of Ex-Braceros" now until Oct. 18. I encourage you to share and celebrate the history of the Bracero workers at El Pueblo, 125 Paseo de la Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Info: (323) 710-3696.
