Scholars Andrea Romero, Ana Ochoa O’Leary, Auggie Romero and Randall Amster, provide the data and prove the success of Raza Studies and contextualize the attacks against it within the politics of dehumanization. The conference on forbidden curriculums is also contextualized relative to the Tlatelolco massacre in Mexico City (Professor Celeste Bustamante) and the National Chicano Moratorium (Ramses Noriega) in Los Angeles, along with two Tucson HS students, Ashley Bustamante (one of the organizers of the 13-mile walk) and Carmen Orozco -- who comment on the significance of the 1970 death of journalist, Ruben Salazar.
* All participants who asked for housing and transportation were accomodated, thus the imprint on the state economy was minimal -- this while supporting and collaborating with Arizona Movement educators, organizers and activists.
