This week I’ve been in the area of Phoenix, Arizona documenting the organizing efforts of the young people here as they take a stand against the recent human rights abuses committed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio. With the assistance of the Center for New Community’s Campaign for a United America Hip-Hop Project, a concert featuring local and national hip-hop talent was successfully pulled together within days of Sheriff Arpaio’s offenses. This was no small feat. In witnessing and working with the people who made this happen brought a new level of hope for me and in an area where I didn’t expect any. In between my time interviewing, going to city council meetings and tagging along side these amazing organizers I was able to pull together a short (albeit, rough) publicity clip for the event. There will be lots more coming in the following days - stay tuned!
