Thursday, May 24

6 - 8 PM: Teach-in: Systemic Racism & Poverty Public ·
Hosted by Arizona Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival

The Tucson chapter of the Poor People's Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is having our week two teach-in! This week's topic is - Linking Systemic Racism and Poverty: Voting Rights and Immigration. Join us and learn about how poverty and systemic racism are symptoms of the same disease.

We will discuss how these systems affect the Arizona community specifically (through border militarization, Operation Streamline, and aggressive enforcement of our already inhumane immigration laws) as well as hurting our people across the nation (voting rights stripped as a consequence of crime, mandatory minimum sentencing, "three strikes" rules, etc.). Each of these policies violate people's constitutional rights, namely the 4th amendment right to equal protection under the law. US laws have ALWAYS targeted POC more aggressively, and more people need to know about this connection.

So come, bring a friend, and listen to or participate in the discussion! By learning and participating, you can help us build a people's movement! Hope to see you there

Where: Alliance For Global Justice 225 E. 26th St., Suite 1 Tucson, AZ 85713, Tucson, Arizona 85713

Santa Teresa, NM 5 - 8 PM: All Against the Wall: Protest Border Wall Construction

Border residents are united in opposition to the militarization of our border. A $72 million contract has been awarded to Montana-based Barnard Construction Company to replace existing 4-foot high vehicle barriers with new 18'-30' steel bollard wall. Construction is underway. This new wall along the U.S.-Mexico border near Santa Teresa, N.M. will divide communities, fragment wildlife habitat, and send a message of division to our neighbors, friends, and family in Mexico.

We invite people from around the region and nation to join us on Saturday, June 2nd, 5-8 pm, where we will gather in solidarity in the path of construction to demonstrate to the world our unequivocal rejection of the militarization of our border.

JOIN A GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION

Our next big moment to shine a spotlight on the climate crisis is September 8th and we need you to be in the streets - join an action near you or host your own. Why September 8? That’s the Saturday before state and local leaders from across the US and around the world are meeting in San Francisco for the Global Climate Action Summit. Every local leader is invited to make a commitment at the summit – so it’s the perfect opportunity for us to push them to take real climate action that protects our climate, jobs, and justice. We won’t be acting alone. 350.org is working with the Peoples Climate Movement and hundreds of organizations like the Sierra Club, the Global Grassroots Justice Alliance, Green Faith, the Service Employees International Union, and more, to make sure that this day is a big success. With your help, we can make this a truly groundbreaking moment.
