Join the College of Fine Arts for a panel discussion on Human Rights and Intersectional Coalition Building on Oct. 4 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Center for the Arts in room 1102.

Attend the discussion for an engaging conversation about exploring the ongoing efforts to end immigration detention, deportation and incarceration. The panel will also address how organizing and advocacy efforts are shaped and influenced by border and prison walls.

The guest speakers will discuss how organizing in an intersectional way, along human rights issues and solidarity with other oppressed communities, can regenerate hope and liberation.

  • Lazarus Letcher: a black trans artist, academic, alliteration addict and activist.
  • Blue Green: an undocumented activist, performer and photographer.
  • Valeria de La Luz: a trans and human rights activist based out of LA.
  • Mariella Saba: a healing arts cultural worker and community organizer from LA.

The event is sponsored by Chicana and Chicano Studies, American Studies, the Department of Art and Art History, the Southwest Hispanic Research Institute, the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice and the Division of Student Affairs.
