Unidos Con Fuerza: Acequias Rising To Meet The Challenges Of Our Times

ABOUT CONGRESO 2020: The Congreso de las Acequias is a vibrant, annual gathering of acequias and our supporters from throughout New Mexico and Southern Colorado. This year, our theme is ‘Unidos con Fuerza’ – in which we honor the collective strength of our communities to endure climate change and the current pandemic. We will lift up our strength with a united voice to defend and protect our precious waters, and a call to action to use our knowledge, land, and water to grow food that nurtures our families, elders, and children. The December 12th event will include our traditional Bendición de las Aguas, acequia roll call, music and poetry, presentations, Concilio elections and resolutions, and opportunities to connect with community.
