March 1-2 event will bring together hundreds at Arizona State University

On March 1-2, 2008, hundreds of activists will gather at ASU in Tempe, Arizona for the 7th Annual "Local to Global Justice" teach-in. Previous teach-ins have brought together activists and campaigns from across the state to learn, share, coordinate and strategize with one another.

This year's theme is "Turning Walls into Bridges/Derrumbando Muros y Levantando Puentes." Workshops will cover everything from union struggles and human rights issues in the Phoenix valley to gender issues, sustainable technology and organizing efforts in Oaxaca, Guatemala and beyond.

Featured speakers include Lisa "Tiny" Gray-Garcia, a poet, activist and founder of POOR magazine, Mara Sapon-Shevin, an author and social justice educator, and Mike Alewitz, a mural artist and labor activist. Other activities will include music, films and youth activities. See a full schedule of events here.
