30 Minutes- Lupe Castillo: History of Organizing in the Borderlands
Lupe Castillo begins La Lucha Sigue Conference with an overview of regional history and resistance.

2012 marks significant anniversaries in Tucson: the 30th Anniversary of the Sanctuary Movement, the 25th Anniversary of BorderLinks, and the 10th Anniversary of Samaritans. As organizers celebrate this history of resistance and struggle in our borderlands, they recognize the need to discover new ways of responding to the injustices that they say continue to plague border communities.





On November 30 and December 1, 2012 community organizers, educators, activists, labor unions, workers, artists, faith leaders, students and many more converged for two days of conversation at a conference called La Lucha Sigue, or The Struggle Continues. Educator and historian Lupe Castillo began the conference held at Most HolyTrinity Catholic Church with a talk called "History of Organizing in the Borderlands."
