THE TRANSFORMATION OF AZ LEADERS

FROM THE ASHES OF SB1070 TO ABUNDANCE & DIGNITY FOR ALL

Alicia Contreras, Ricardo Zamudio & panel

This Go & See is a glimpse and reflection of what has taken place on the ground in Arizona within the immigration conversation. Arizona has grown leaders from the community that rose from the pain and barriers anti-immigrant policies created in the Latino community. Leaders will have a panel conversation to talk about the power building taken place within Christian Community Development that focuses on the needs of the community, leadership development and the current fight for justice within the issue of immigration.

NEIGHBORS TABLE: LOOKING AT THE IMMIGRATION STORY THROUGH ARIZONA'S LENS

Chris Williams & Jimy Martinez

This afternoon session seeks to tell the story of the immigrant journey in Arizona, looking at our death producing desert, the massive Tohono O’odham nation which engages on many levels and sits at the border, and the stories of our immigrant families that have taught many how to understand the pilgrimage. This group will look at what has emerged from the story-telling, “The Neighbors Table”.

RACIAL INJUSTICE IN THE STORY OF ARIZONA

Linda Morris & Marco Perez

Every city and state has its legacy of racial injustices. The blood is in the soil, so to speak. How does AZ tell its story? Through its historical treatments of the First Nations people (22 different tribes), the Mexican (Latino) story, the African American story, the Chinese American story, the Japanese American story during the internment period, and the city under segregation. Telling our story is purposed for the challenge to get others to find out the stories in their own cities, as well as give present Arizona residents eyes to see their own city and state. We understand that the trauma and lamentation of racial injustice has led to the surge of resilience.
