This year’s theme is "Todos Somos Arizona:" Confronting the Attacks on Difference. The national anti-immigrant and anti-Chicana/o Latina/o legislation speaks to the continued fear of difference within the United States. Difference across race, genders, sexualities, abilities, religions, languages, national origins, and other social identities continues to draw attacks against our communities. Our theme is inspired by organizations such as "Todos Somos Arizona," a solidarity group that seeks to counter Arizona’s oppressive legislation. This year’s theme is a call to unpack difference as it is embodied and experienced, how it impacts knowledge production, effects policy, and prevents the access to necessary knowledge and historical narratives. The theme also provides an opportunity to explore collaborations and build community across difference.
