Mago

I was born in Puebla which is at the center of Mexico and I now live in Rosarito, B.C.

I am a Migrant, indigenous Nahuatl.

My parents died when I was a child and due to that and violence I was experiencing within the family and in my workplace, I decided to come to the border in 2000.

 

I have been a day laborer (field worker), domestic worker, maquila (factory worker), and have worked in services. In one of the maquiladoras I worked for, I was on strike for 7 years on strike.

I have been an artisan since I was a child and 21 years ago I also decided to dedicate myself to the defense of labor rights with a gender perspective and founded the following two organizations:

 

  • The collective Ollin Calli, A.C.(Mexican non-profit) is a collective located in Tijuana, we provide tools that better develop our organizing efforts. Defend our rights to work and live with dignity, gender equity and to work in a clean, healthy and safe environment.

 

  • México Artesano B.C.,Civil Association composed mostly of single mothers living in Tijuana
