Taking Back Cinco de Mayo

Youth are leading the way in taking back Cinco de Mayo. In San Diego youth are asking liquour stores and restaurants to not display offensive flyers about Cinco de Mayo. These teens are part of the Cinco de Mayo con Orgullo (with pride) Coalition, a statewide group that seeks to reclaim this holiday from the alcohol industry. The group has organized several alcohol-free, family-friendly Cinco de Mayo celebrations between May 2 and 6, including the Cinco de Mayo con Orgullo Para La Familia Festival at National City's Kimball Park.
