S.T.I.C.H.E.D. Workshop by Climbing Poe Tree (Pre-registration is required for the workshop) Register at: http://z.umn.edu/climbingpoetry

S.T.I.C.H.E.D. is a story-gathering project that Climbing PoeTree started during their 2005 national tour. This incredible multi-colored tapestry holds more than 5,000 Stories, Testimonies, Intentions, Truths, Confessions, Healing, Expressions, & Dreams written by audience members and workshop participants Alexa and Naima have met across the nation. The magic of S.T.I.C.H.E.D. comes from declaring our truths, and baring witness to others'. When we tell our own stories, we reclaim the power to write our own futures. When we recognize ourselves in each other, we begin to dispell the myths that are created to keep us divided. Our goal is nothing short of transforming a culture of cynicism into a culture of caring. This project is one stitch in the patchwork of our collective liberation. More information can be found here: http://www.climbingpoetree.com/experience/projects/stitched/

"Undocumented, Unafraid & Unapologetic: Fighting for Immigrant Rights with Dignity" Antonio Gutierrez, organizer with the Immigrant Youth Justice League and the Mexico-US Solidarity Network

The Immigrant Youth Justice League (IYJL) is a Chicago-based group let by undocumented organizers working towards full recognition of the rights and contributions of all immigrants through education, leadership development, policy advocacy, resource gathering, and mobilization. On March 10, 2010 IYJL launched the first Coming Out of the Shadows rally in downtown Chicago where a group of undocumented youth publicly and proudly shared their stories claiming "We are Undocumented and Unafraid." In the years that followed, similar events have sprung up in different cities around the nation. Coming Out of the Shadows has become an incredibly successful strategy for the immigrant rights movement that empowers people to overcome their fear and go into the streets to organize.
