6:30 - 8:30 PM: The Child Separation Fiasco: How did we get here?
Hosted by Az Ground Game

The policy of family separation evoked alarm and outrage from the general public this summer. But this practice is merely the latest in a decades-long trend of increased criminalization of migrants along the Southwest border. To better understand how we got here, panelists will briefly trace the history of an obscure yet powerful section of federal criminal code: Section 1325 of Title 8 of U.S. Code.

This law, created in 1929, culminated in Tucson with the 2008 creation of “Operation Streamline” that many Tucsonans are now familiar with. Panelists will make the argument that family separation was made possible, in part, by this decades-old criminal statute that today accounts for over half of all federal prosecutions, and that any genuine policy change in this arena ought to focus on eliminating Section 1325.

Speakers include Billy Peard (ACLU) and Isabel Garcia.

On the 4th Friday of every month in 2018 I will be accepting donations ~for causes I care deeply about~ in exchange for an hour of inclusive, gentle yoga. My aim for Fourth Friday Fundraisers are to bring awareness to and show support for different anti-oppression movements in Tucson. We will spend an hour nurturing ourselves so that we can show up more fully for those in need in our community. August's recipient is Free the Children Coalition, a community of activists in Tucson who are passionately demanding the abolishment of child detention and family separation in America.

Their efforts are focusing first individuals and families affected in our community, to address how our county has been complicit in this human right's violation that has been occurring locally since 2004.

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.
