Too often the story of immigration is told by the law, the mainstream media, and government institutions. These narratives often “other” immigrants. U.S. law literally defines immigrants as “aliens,” and locally, openly racist, and anti-immigrant laws like SB 1070 and officials like the former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio perpetuate a deep culture of hostility against immigrants. This fall, the Phoenix Legal Action Network (PLAN) will hold its first immigrant storytellers event, En nuestras propias palabras/In our own words, to give immigrants a platform to take back the microphone and share honest, personal stories of life in Arizona through oral storytelling and art. Get a glimpse of the artists and storytellers who will be performing below.
