City Heights Salsa Dance Rally to bridge divides inside San Diego and ‘The Border’Entertainment News, Event Calendar, Online Only, Section 4A Friday, August 11th, 2017
SAN DIEGO, Calif. — This Saturday, City Heights residents and Latino-immigrant business owners invite San Diego to Salsa Sabado, a salsa dance rally to both protest Washington, D.C.’s attempts to divide and to build bridges across San Diego’s El Cajon Boulevard “border wall.”
“The proposed border wall goes against the principles of unity and collaboration and hurts our local economy and the environment,” said San Diego City Councilmember Georgette Gómez.
“Commerce along our San Diego-Tijuana region is one of the most thriving and vibrant systems in our nation, and we must continue to improve the infrastructure that boosts its economic success, not thwart it,” Gomez continued.
“I applaud and thank the El Cajon BIA for hosting this creative rally to highlight the need for bridges among our communities, not walls.”
- Saturday, August 12
- 4 p.m. – 9 p.m. (free salsa lessons and “El Puente” demonstration at 4 p.m.)
