    “Join us on February 24 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.
    Please join us, and spread the word
    Snacks and childcare provided.”
