Ajo, Arizona: Come Join the First Conversation
The Ajo Art Gallery will feature photography and art depicting a border theme. There will be a pop up gallery in which artists are invited to display their art, ready to hang, first come first serve.
At 6pm, a drop cloth will be displayed near the murals in the alley south of the plaza. The public is invited to draw, paint, write, and contribute. Musicians are also invited to display their talents. A booth will provide information and education on issues surrounding migrants in the desert. Light refreshments will be served.
At sunset, the event will move to the plaza for a candlelight vigil for all lives lost in the desert as well as those who have experienced trauma as a result of border. All are welcome!
For recognition that
migrant lives matter
and that community members
in this area have rights!
