2nd Annual Living Without Borders / Viviendo Sin Fronteras encuentro

November 6-8, 2009

Las Vegas, Nevada




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

Cambio Social."



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 (>).

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

through language, and more.

We encourage participants (that means *you*) to propose and facilitate

their own workshops about issues and projects that matter to them.

(Have a great idea for a workshop? Fill out our online form to propose

it at>.)

In addition to the keynotes and the workshops, there'll be meals to

share, with a free breakfast and lunch. There'll be tabling space for

participants to connect with artists and organizations in the

community, and for participants and organizations to display

information, art, zines, and things they have made. (If you or a group

you are a part of would be interested in tabling at the encuentro, you

can sign up at>.) And

there'll be cultura, art, a free concert -- featuring PAN DE SAL, FE


well as a bit of teatro rascuache, and some hands-on activism for

social justice.

**Free breakfast and lunch will be provided for those who register in

through arguments and language.

* Showings of films like "Easy Targets / Los Vulnerables" on the

immigrant struggle.

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

immigrant rights.

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.
