A People’s History of West Valley Phoenix: Unwritten not Untold

Description

The outlying cities of Phoenix's West Metropolitan experienced rapid growth in the past ten years. This trend is only going to continue with an average expected growth of 449-891% between 2000 and 2035 (ADOT, 2012). Phoenix is not new to

The outlying cities of Phoenix's West Metropolitan experienced rapid growth in the past ten years. This trend is only going to continue with an average expected growth of 449-891% between 2000 and 2035 (ADOT, 2012). Phoenix is not new to growth and has consistently seen swaths of people added to its population. This raises the question of what happened to the people who lived in Phoenix's West Valley during this period of rapid change and growth in their communities? What are their stories and what do their stories reveal about the broader public history of change in Phoenix's West Valley? In consideration of these questions, the community oral histories of eight residents from the West Valley were collected to add historical nuance to the limited archival records available in the area. From this collection, the previous notion of "post-war boomtowns” describing Phoenix’s West Valley was revealed to be highly inaccurate and dismissive of the residents' experiences who lived and formed their lives there.

March For Our Lives: Stories of Youth Gun Violence Prevention Activists

Description

On March 24th, 2018, over a million people from across the United States and around the world came together for the single largest single day of protest against gun violence in history. The protest, called the March For Our Lives,

On March 24th, 2018, over a million people from across the United States and around the world came together for the single largest single day of protest against gun violence in history. The protest, called the March For Our Lives, was a student-organized response to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that left 17 people dead and another 17 people critically injured. While there is significant documentation of the historic 2018 March For Our Lives protest, there is scarcely any documentation about the stories of young organizers that have been working to promote gun violence prevention in their communities since then. This project utilizes oral histories from two March For Our Lives organizers to expand the available historical documentation about the March For Our Lives, investigate the tactics and motivations of young gun violence prevention organizers, and highlight the stories of diverse movement leaders.

I conducted an oral history project of five women with journeys in the Christian faith who had experience working with asylum seekers and refugees in the Phoenix metropolitan area. I explore with this project the perceptions of the helping relationship through the stories of these women and how their beliefs about their faith and work inform each other to pursue meaningful connections for the benefit of others.
