Tucson, Arizona ~ November 1-3
This fall, Courage to Resist will be joining our fiscal sponsor, the Alliance for Global Justice — and dozens of allied groups and a multitude of activists from around the United States — for a three-day conference to network and strategize towards a more unified, effective movement for change. Titled “Tear Down the Walls,” the gathering recognizes the many facets of social and economic justice transformation called for in our laws and policies, from literal walls such as the U.S. border and prison cell blocks, to divisive forces such as militarism, oppression by race, gender, the criminalization of the poor–the list goes on and on. But most of all, “Tear Down the Walls” will be geared towards erasing the artificial obstacles that prevent those interested in transformative change from working more closely together, across the issues.
The largest U.S. social justice gathering of the year, “Tear Down the Walls” is open to the public and will be held in Tucson, AZ, Nov 1-3. The gathering will culminate in participation in Tucson’s famous “All Souls Procession,” a Day of the Dead parade drawing a crowd of 20,000 in its unique combination of solemnity and Mardi Gras!
Courage to Resist and the Private Manning Support Network will be giving presentations and participating in one of the gathering’s cornerstone seminars. We also hope to meet some of you in person.
Tear Down the Walls National Gathering 2013 will include representatives and presentations from Courage to Resist, School of the Americas Watch, Code Pink, Occupy Wall Street, World Can’t Wait, and more!
