There are many misconceptions and myths around Cinco de Mayo and its significance in Mexican Culture and History. In the US, it has historically been seen as a day of celebration commonly mistaken for Mexico’s Independence Day. But south of the border, the holiday merits very little as the actual 1862 event is a reminder of a tough outgunned invasion of Puebla by the French army. While it was a battle won it was a war that was lost. In an effort to help shed light about this date we will be using this day not to celebrate but instead to raise awareness and funding about Mexican Heritage and help bring equity and change to those that identify as such and are in need of Legal and Educational resources.
