It is a pleasure to share the portrait poster I created of Camilio Mejia. Camilo has been a critical voice in the opposition to the occupation of Iraq.
In 2003, after spending six months in Iraq and Jordan, Camilo Mejia became the first U.S. combat veteran to publicly refuse to deploy back to Iraq. In March 2004 he turned himself in and applied for conscientious objection. Mejia was convicted of desertion by the U.S. Military and sentenced to a year in prison. Since his release in February of 2005, he has devoted his time to speaking out against the war in Iraq.
This year marks the 38th annual Raza Day at UC Berkeley. It is a day of workshops and activities intended to encourage middle school, high school and community college students to pursue higher education.
I will be speaking at this year's event. At 9:30 am on Nov 1st in Wheeler Hall.
It is free and open to the public so bring your kids, nieces, nephews, neighbors etc.
This is the poster I designed that will be give out to all the youth in attendence.
