The Arts: Building a Bridge in a Community Divided

Immigration, migration and emigration has been the topic of challenging and emotional controversy in Arizona and throughout the world. Phoenix and Maricopa County has been Ground Zero for many pieces of legislative action. Several years ago The Fusion Foundation initiated the Voices for Civil Dialogue Program to bring diverse voices together -- including leaders from the Minutemen and Somos America -- to address this challenging topic. To address the community's response to SB-1070, The Fusion Foundation spearheaded an arts and cultural program called "SB-1070 - An Artist's Point of View." The response was overwhelming in both the media and from diverse communities, including conservative republicans, liberal democrats, moderate republicans and democrats and members of diverse racial, ethnic populations. The decision to launch the program was to give the community an opportunity to develop their own personal discernment.
