Etherton Gallery hosts the traveling exhibition, In this Together: Sixty Years of Daring to Create a More Perfect Arizona, (January 8 – February 2, 2019), which celebrates the ACLU of Arizona’s 60th Anniversary. The exhibition features 40 Arizona artists whose work reflects the mission of the ACLU, to protect the constitutional rights of all. The artwork was selected from a pool of Arizona artists who responded to a public call for artwork relating to the ACLU’s mission. In this Together opens with a gallery reception, 7-10pm, Saturday, January 12, 2019. The show runs from January 8 – February 2, 2019.
ACLU of Arizona Executive Director Alessandra Soler explained the meaning of the name of the exhibit: “Our work isn’t about one person, one party or one issue. It’s about all of us, we the people, coming together and daring to create a more perfect Arizona. We’re in this together.”
Panel Discussion: Migrant Justice Now
Etherton Gallery and the Arizona ACLU will host a panel discussion on the criminalization of migrants, at 5:30pm, January 24, 2019, moderated by Nancy Montoya of Arizona Public Media. President Trump’s war on asylum seekers has separated thousands of children from their parents in the latest dark chapter of a decades-long trend. One hundred migrants are processed in Tucson’s Federal Court every day for entering our border. Many of these migrants face criminal charges due to an obscure, yet powerful section of the our criminal code, at the same time that they are trying to defend themselves against deportation — a civil court process that does not entitle them to legal representation. Hear from three attorneys on the frontlines of defense who believe that this law should be repealed. Learn how you can help bring transparency and accountability to our justice system by becoming a court observer. Speakers: Billy Peard, ACLU Attorney; Erendire Castillo, Castillo Law; Isabel Garcia, Derechos Humanos.
