No More Arizonas: A Student Tour Against Bigotry
We’ve all heard about the heated battles in Arizona over anti-immigrant laws like SB 1070. But have you ever wondered what life is like inside the most controversial state in the nation? During a week-long tour of the state after the enactment of SB 1070, a delegation of nine students decided to find out. The accounts of what they saw, who they met, and how it changed their lives are riveting. Now these same students are touring the East coast and sharing their stories.
Join them for an upcoming speaking engagement to hear firsthand what they experienced, learn more about the rise of the anti-immigrant movement, and how campuses around the country are finding ways to counter bigotry.

Cohesion: Where Culture Meets Activism. The purpose of this event is to engage students, faculty and staff in a dialogue about the multicultural, political, and intellectual boundaries that we draw between ourselves as students, and how these lines have defined and created a culture of divided student involvement on our campus. This event will be held in the Ridgewood A Common Space from 6:00pm to 8:00pm and will include a special Thanksgiving themed, home-cooked dinner.
