El Grito

September 15

The City of Los Angeles and Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez present ¡EL GRITO!, a benefit telethon to raise funds to support undocumented Angelenos impacted by COVID-19 and to kickoff Latino Heritage Month — featuring Los Tucanes de Tijuana and La Santa Cecilia.

¡EL GRITO! is the celebration of Mexican Independence Day and the September Independence Days of Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.

Traditionally held on the steps of City Hall, this year’s ¡EL GRITO! will feature virtual musical performances to raise funds for Angelenos impacted by COVID-19. The telethon will also highlight Los Angeles’ vibrant Latino community as well as showcase the immense contributions Latinos have made to the City’s culture, history, and economy.

The music lineup features a diverse mix of sounds ranging from mariachi, banda, trio, and norteño. During the program, the City of L.A. will join the Consul General of Mexico in re-enacting the historic Cry of Dolores and ringing of the bell, which commemorates the call to arms pronounced by Miguel Hidalgo in 1810 which launched the Mexican War for Independence.

Funds raised to help support undocumented Angelenos impacted by COVID-19 via the L.A. based Comunidades Indígenas en Liderazgo (CIELO).
