Saturday, August 2nd 2014, the Carnalismo Brown Berets converged at a national level for the “Junta de Unidad,” Carnalismo Brown Beret Unity Conference in Odessa, Tejas. The conference allowed for participants to see and hear first hand what other members had to say about their specific environments, concerns, and any initiatives they had been working on.
The conference also allowed for some votes and motions to be put forth. The Carnalismo Brown Berets voted two National Spokespeople; Rosemary Martinez, and Ricky Gonzales. Another vote was put forth to open up a Carnalismo Female Commission, to handle specific initiatives from the female perspective.
We wish to thank the hosting chapter; Carnalismo Brown Berets de Odessa for all of the accommodations; the food, venues, and hospitality we were privileged to partake in. It was an honor to be in their company.
