9 AM - 1 PM: Immigrant Justice Solidarity workshop

Join us at the UU Church of Tucson in the Goddard Hall for this four hour interactive workshop to support the vibrant Immigrant Justice movement in Southern Arizona. This workshop is designed to support non-immigrants to take strategic, effective and accountable collective action in solidarity with immigrant communities to end deportations, detention, and challenge the border wall. This workshop can support all people who are not immigrants to be stronger partners, it is especially geared towards white activists and majority white organizations and faith groups to support white folks in identifying and challenging white supremacy. It also has a focus on embodiment and how we can come to solidarity work from a more grounded place. This workshop will aim to support participants in taking accountable action towards local immigrant justice struggles.

10 - 10:15 AM CDT Enough! National School Walkout
Hosted by Leila Counts for TUSD and 2 others

ATTENTION! WE NEED MORE STUDENT LEADERS TO JOIN US! IF YOU KNOW ANY STUDENTS FROM Rincon-University High School, Tucson, Az Mountain View High School Canyon Del Oro DoradosIronwood Ridge High School Sabino High School Sunnyside High School Tucson High Magnet School Amphitheater High School Pima Community College or any other high school invite them to this event!!!!!! Women’s March Youth EMPOWER is calling for students, teachers, school administrators, parents and allies to take part in a #NationalSchoolWalkout for 17 minutes at 10am across every time zone on March 14, 2018 to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods. We need action. Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship. Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school. Parents have the right to send their kids to school in the mornings and see them home alive at the end of the day. We are not safe at school. We are not safe in our cities and towns. Congress must take meaningful action to keep us safe and pass federal gun reform legislation that addresses the public health crisis of gun violence. We want Congress to pay attention and take note: many of us will vote this November and many others will join in 2020. Join us in saying #ENOUGH!

10 - 12 Noon March For Our Lives - Tucson
Hosted by Leila Counts for TUSD and 2 others

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now. It doesn’t have to be this way. Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard. Stand with us on March 24. Refuse to allow one more needless death. MARCH FOR OUR LIVES!
