On Tuesday, 3/28, Rocio Vasquez from the Mexican Consulate of Philadelphia came to Bryn Mawr College to talk about her work at the consulate, what she does during the day, and how they are working to protect immigrants in the area. The consulate does amazing work with labor rights, family law, criminal law, and health services.
The event was a casual, conversational environment with a q/a session, and there was a large turnout including faculty and staff. The event will also be covered by the Bryn Mawr website.
We thank Rocio for coming and sharing her perspectives, and we look forward to getting involved with the Mexican consulate in the future to help promote human rights here and abroad.
On march 14th, Little Known Help Zone will be hosting a great event with a speaker, Rocio Vasquez from the Philadelphian Mexican Consulate.

We are so grateful for these speakers donating their time, and the event will be catered with light snacks and refreshments.
We hope you can make it to Bryn Mawr College, Dalton 300 @ 4:00 PM on march 14th.
On March 1st, Little Known Help Zone held their first event for the Spring Semester promoting labor rights and equality in Central America. This study hour featured light food and Tea from the Chirrepeco Cooperative, a Guatemalan tea coop that practices unionization and voting rights, as well as fair wages and women’s empowerment.
