IPLP January in Tucson Registration is Open

For three weeks each year, the January in Tucson (JIT) intensive education session brings together distinguished faculty in the field of Indigenous governance and Indigenous rights, and gives them the opportunity to teach and hold discussions with Indigenous leaders, practitioners, and community members, as well as other individuals interested in Indigenous affairs.
The result is more than just a series of classes on Indigenous topics. JIT courses not only convey important information backed by research, but they allow space for a crucial dialogue to occur between Indigenous peoples from all over the world. This conversation provides new perspectives to familiar challenges, and helps to make JIT a truly unique educational experience.
Cost of Online Attendance
To help meet the needs of Indigenous communities affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic, JIT 2021 will feature a one-time, COVID-19 Response Rate of $500 per course/credit (regular cost is $750). Courses will be live streamed via Zoom and all course materials will be available on the University of Arizona's online course platform.

Each course accommodates only 30 students, so register early.

Let me close with the message that I sent out to the College of Law community yesterday:

Dear COL Community,
Usually we study history.  Sometimes we live it.
We have all been living history for at least 9 months (give or take).  From another perspective, we all live history, every day -- and issues like climate change, racial, social and economic justice, democracy, privacy and liberty define our times.  These and other matters may have drawn you to study law.
Tomorrow will likely be one of those days many of us remember, long after that day. It may be intense.
Many of you have been working on efforts, shared broadly, to Get Out the Vote, for Election Protection, and to otherwise support election integrity. 
As individuals many of you have worked on behalf of candidates and issues. 
We are thankful for all political participation -- whether on behalf of democracy, or for people and principles that matter to you.
Whatever your view of candidates, issues, or headlines, I encourage you all to show the respect for each other, and for difference, that has always defined our community.
Thank you.  Stay safe.  Stay cool. 
And Bear Down.

Marc Signature
