WHAT IS LIVING WITHOUT BORDERS?
The 2nd annual Living Without Borders encuentro will be held from
Friday, November 6 to Sunday, November 8, 2009, in Las Vegas, Nevada,
on the campus of University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Living Without Borders / Viviendo Sin Fronteras is an encuentro
sponsored by the United Coalition for Im/migrant Rights in Las Vegas,
which will bring together hundreds of activists and community members,
for a weekend of discussion, action, transformation, love and
entertainment devoted to immigration freedom, raising consciousness,
and organizing in our communities. This year's encuentro will be
devoted to the theme of "Building Autonomous Communities y Celebrando
WHAT CAN I DO THERE?
Living Without Borders is based around discussions, workshops, and
presentations which give participants the opportunity to share skills,
share ideas, discuss important issues, increase their multidimensional
consciousness, organize campaigns, and have fun as a community.
Keynote addresses by:
* Author RINKU SEN ("The Accidental American: Immigration and
Citizenship in the Age of Globalization")
* HILDA GARCIA, a representative from LA MUJER OBRERA autonomous
community in El Paso, Texas (http://www.mujerobrera.org/>).
Throughout the encuentro, there will be workshops on immigration
freedom, the criminalization of immigrants, the interconnection of
struggles, community organizing, deconstructing of systems of
oppression, creating autonomous communities, environmental justice,
movement(s) building, activist skill-shares, defending social justice

We encourage participants (that means *you*) to propose and facilitate
their own workshops about issues and projects that matter to them.

United Coalition for Im/migrant Rights
Organizers of the 2009 Living Without Borders encuentro
Las Vegas, Nevada
The United Coalition for Im/migrant Rights, UCIR, is an activist group
for immigration freedom based in Las Vegas, Nevada. We meet regularly
on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. We sponsor
educational forums and know-your-rights workshops, and we work
together with other community organizers to organize actions such as
the May 23, 2008 "March for the DREAM" and the annual May 1 march for
We created "Living Without Borders / Viviendo Sin Fronteras" with a
vision centered on the belief that social justice is not possible
without engaging in a multidimensional struggle to eradicate all unven
power relationships and discriminatory forces in society — including
the enforcement of national borders, the segregation of people based
on arbitrary lines of political jurisdiction, and the construction of
privilege for officially-recognized "citizens" over immigrants and
migrants. We hope the encuentro will open up a space for discussion on
the fundamentals of a borderless consciousness, and the application of
these fundamentals through activism. We aim to create an encounter
that will instill the spirit of grassroots organizing in hopes to
awaken, inspire, and reinvigorate the activist within each of us.
