Be sure to check out the UA-sponsored Tucson Humanities Festival this week; the focus is refuge, and the impact of migration, climate change, and displacement. Also, along with the holidays, Giving Tuesday approaches—a chance to support the KBI during a season of thanks.
- Tucson Humanities Festival: This year, the Tucson Humanities Festival (formerly Humanities Week) focuses on the theme of refuge and runs from October 10–17, 2016. Sponsored by the University of Arizona, the festival includes lectures by Humanities faculty and invited presenters on the impact of migration, climate change, and displacement. For more information, see: http://humanities.arizona.edu/tucson-humanities-festival.
- Giving Tuesday: Mark the date—Tuesday, November 29—as an opportunity to make a gift to the Kino Border Initiative! Giving Tuesday is a nationwide campaign that reminds us of the importance of charity in the midst of the holiday abundance. Help us provide hope and support to migrant men, women and children as we advocate for more just and humane immigration policies. You can donate here, on Giving Tuesday or anytime, with our deep thanks: https://www.kinoborderinitiative.org/get-involved/donate/.
