CHWs at 16 de Septiembre Parade
September 14 @ 8:00 am – 2:00 pm
Community Health Worker Students from Northwest Vista College and members of the San Antonio Community Health Workers Association will be marching together in celebration of the 16 de Septiembre Parade.
“The Avenida Guadalupe neighborhood Dieciséis de Septiembre Parade
began 38 years ago in an effort to preserve and memorialize occurrences
in local Mexican-American history, particularly recognizing San Antonio
de Bexar’s important role in “El Grito de Dorores” (the Cry of Dolores)
and the Mexican War of Independence” (Avenida).
In 2016, we particpated for the first time and we’ve made this a symbolic celebration to honor our connection to the community. This is a family friendly event and CHWs are encouraged to bring family and friends to join us in the walk or to enjoy the parade along the streets of the neigborhood.
