Viewing of Klee Benally’s film with the cast at the Ministry Center, tentatively set for 6:30-9pm. We will watch the film, have popcorn and drinks and then do a Q&A with Klee and the cast.
Friday evening Dinner and reception
Awarding of the advocacy award to the Repeal Coalition with their response and a keynote from Luis Fernandez. Dinner is from Simply Delicious (a local all natural restaurant). This will be at the ministry center as well.
Various advocacy groups will be tabling in the hall outside the gathering room at various time throughout the conference so members can network with them. We will also have a display of an art show of CIP (children of incarcerated parents) artwork. This will feature CIP drawings mixed with quotes from interviews with CIPs in Northern Arizona.
