14:00 pm 10/14/2019
Greenlee, Tucson Convention Center

Everyday, grassroots organizations organize, educate and empower themselves and their communities to force neighborhood change and sway municipalities to do the things they have failed to previously act on. This panel will look at the impact of social movements, grassroots organizations, and community organizers who have fulfilled the needs caused by systemic issues. From Sanctuary Cities, to Mass Liberation, reproductive health, and sustainability; these activists/organizers have empowered armies that have turned cities upside-down overnight.
