CARNALISMO BROWN BERETS, Itl
We are the Carnalismo Brown Berets. Our mission is to serve our community and our people. To serve as the voice for our people. To be an example to a generation that is short of positive role models. We are not here for personal gain nor riches. We are here to help those that are oppressed and need a voice. Those who do not know how to stand up for themselves. We do not discriminate as we have been discriminated against, we will stand tall and fight until we and the generations after us need not to fight anymore. We are your Carnalismo Brown Berets and we are here to serve you. Our raza, our community, our family, our city.
The Carnalismo Brown Beret Patch has been here for WELL OVER 40 years and it is here to STAY.
We have to stand for what is right. The Carnalismo Brown Berets have decided to take a stand. Through the guidance of some original members we have gathered others that have similar views and passions. Thus, we have formed together in order to start the organization anew.
The goals are the same: We will stand for rights and equality and we will be the voice of our people, for all generations. We will rebuild our wounded youth and instill in them self worth and pride. We will work in our communities to help those in need and we will not abandon the struggle.
The Carnalismo Brown Berets of today are looking to make a difference in all aspects of life. Even today, after all that has been accomplished as far as civil rights is concerned the struggle is not over. We have already partnered with the Black Panthers, LULAC, the UFW, and other organizations in a combined effort with and to support la gente de nuestro barrio. We look forward to working with the Black Panthers and other organizations towards one common goal: EQUALITY in every facet of the word.
