Know Your Rights Training

As we continue to build our capacity to resist and challenge the corporate state, it is vital that we know how to protect ourselves and each other against the intensifying state repression under the current administration. We invite you to join the Civil Liberties Defense Center for an intensive training structured to build our collective knowledge and skills to increase the security of individuals and political organizing groups. This training will include a Know Your Rights session and cover security culture, the various ways we are facing state repression (Grand Juries, SLAPP Suits, RICO) and how to effectively combat it.

This training is designed to offer an introduction to security for people who are completely new to organizing, as well as provide development and reminders for those who have been organizing for awhile.

Public mural painting: Saturday, September 8

8 AM – 11 AM

Come help us paint a mural along a major thoroughfare in Tucson!

As the trials of our volunteers draw closer, we’re amping up our outreach efforts and making sure that everybody in Tucson knows that HUMANITARIAN AID IS NEVER A CRIME! This mural painting launches our fall lawn sign campaign, which will allow Tucsonians to proudly show their solidarity with No More Deaths and to demand that the government cease the criminalization of aid workers. Come pick up a sign for your yard, learn how you can get involved and help us paint by number!

Snacks, brushes and cold beverages provided. Wear clothes you can get dirty.

Accessibility info: this mural will be painted on a wall along the north side of Broadway between Alvernon and Columbus. We will be working on the sidewalk in little-to-no shade. There will be no bathroom access. Broadway is a busy street with medium to heavy traffic.

Widely thought of as a “border writer” because of his cross-cultural experience and focus, Urrea says he is “more interested in bridges than borders.” The event’s dialogue will be moderated by Ernesto Portillo Jr., editor of La Estrella de Tucsón and columnist for the Arizona Daily Star. A limited number of tickets are available. Continue reading An evening with Luis Alberto Urrea: a benefit for No More Deaths
