Indigenous Peoples Day Arizona

This will be the 4th Annual Indigenous Peoples Day Arizona celebration organized by Indigenous grassroots community members.

#IPDAZ18 will bring awareness to the continued systematic oppression that normalizes the murder and theft of Indigenous bodies. We honor life and celebrate our existence. We invite everyone to build on this journey for a safer and more just community for our youth, elders, and future generations.

We will have musicians, live art, food, and community gathering.

See you there!

"The Mask You Live In" Film Screening

The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.

Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men.
