  • Robin Reineke, Assistant Research Social Scientist, UArizona Southwest Center
  • David Taylor, Professor, UArizona School of Art

Moderator: Maritza Cárdenas, Confluencenter Acting Director

Confluencenter acting director Maritza Cárdenas will lead a panel of experts to discuss their standpoints on migration at the US-Mexico border. The experts include human rights advocates Isabel García from Coalición de Derechos Humanos and Dora Rodríguez from Salvavision, as well as academics Robin Reineke and David Taylor from the University of Arizona. Through stories, research, and creative practices, the conversation aims to advocate and elevate historically overlooked voices to form a more inclusive, accurate, and just portrayal of the communities on the U.S.-Mexico border. There will be a Q&A section, and attendees will have the opportunity to mingle and keep the conversation going with the panelists at the end of the session. Fronteridades is a project led by the Confluencenter and sponsored by the Mellon Foundation.

Confluencenter will be collecting monetary donations on behalf of Derechos Humanos and Salvavison. Join us in making a positive impact: Every contribution helps!
