La Mission: una comunidad juntandose - para cambio social


Latin Americans--United States--Social life and customs


The poster features a drawing of grey industrial buildings set against a yellow sky. One of the buildings has plumes of black smoke coming from its smokestacks. The buildings are covered with graffiti, specifically words such as: "lucky alleys," "Chicano power," "viva la raza," "Latino power," "people power," "end the war," and "boycott lettuce." There are two street signs that read "racism" and "unemployment," and another sign that reads "capitalist sin." A white skeleton heavily outlined in black lays is on the ground with a gun stuck to its chest. The text states, "La Mission una communidad juntandose, para cambio social." There is English and Spanish text appearing in red.
