This spring, AFSC was invited to show some of our digital stories from “Borders Lifted, Voices Raised” and provide background information on immigration issues to parents at a bilingual middle school in Boulder. The bilingual school has confronted racist threats to students recently. The invitation to AFSC was part of a parent and administrative effort to raise consciousness about immigration issues.

When I first heard about the Campus Organizing Conference, I must admit I was a bit skeptical. I have attended numerous conferences related to working for peace and justice in Palestine/Israel, and, while enjoyable, I never felt that I learned anything from the conferences that could be applied in a practical manner. Happily, this was not the case at the Campus Organizing Conference held by the American Friends Service Committee on March 5th in Washington, DC.
