00:16:20,770 --> 00:16:24,430 leave, who have conquered fear, and who have set a new 206 00:16:24,430 --> 00:16:28,620 example for what it means to work toward justice-- 207 00:16:28,620 --> 00:16:30,670 people like Viridiana. 208 00:16:30,670 --> 00:16:33,210 And there is no greater example than the people who 209 00:16:33,210 --> 00:16:36,950 have taken this struggle to all corners of this country, 210 00:16:36,950 --> 00:16:39,400 from Arizona to Georgia-- 211 00:16:39,400 --> 00:16:41,570 people like Adelina. 212 00:16:41,570 --> 00:16:45,100 I am grateful to all of them, for their work. 213 00:16:45,100 --> 00:16:50,192 And I am greatly honored to introduce them to you tonight. 214 00:16:50,192 --> 00:17:01,920 [APPLAUSE] 215 00:17:01,920 --> 00:17:06,329 FERNANDO LOPEZ: [SPEAKING SPANISH] 216 00:17:06,329 --> 00:17:08,349 FERNANDO LOPEZ: First, I want to thank all of you for the 217 00:17:08,349 --> 00:17:11,950 opportunity of the letting me be here today. 218 00:17:11,950 --> 00:17:15,430 People come here under different circumstances. 219 00:17:15,430 --> 00:17:19,504 I came as a teenager, wanting to reunite with my brother, 220 00:17:19,504 --> 00:17:21,990 who I hadn't seen in eight years. 221 00:17:21,990 --> 00:17:25,000 But year and a half after I got here, he left, back to 222 00:17:25,000 --> 00:17:29,800 Mexico, when they passed SB 1070 two years ago. 223 00:17:29,800 --> 00:17:33,120 Once I saw the suffering my community was going through, I 224 00:17:33,120 --> 00:17:35,290 decided to get involved. 225 00:17:35,290 --> 00:17:38,060 A friend called and invited me to collect water for the 226 00:17:38,060 --> 00:17:43,190 group, No More Deaths, who help out there, in the desert. 227 00:17:43,190 --> 00:17:46,920 When the movement against SB 1070 started, I met Puente, 228 00:17:46,920 --> 00:17:50,010 and I got involved in the marches. 229 00:17:50,010 --> 00:17:54,000 But a year ago, I was pulled over in a 230 00:17:54,000 --> 00:17:56,090 routine traffic stop. 231 00:17:56,090 --> 00:18:01,130 Because I'm undocumented, I was detained in an immigration 232 00:18:01,130 --> 00:18:03,050 detention center. 233 00:18:03,050 --> 00:18:06,260 Because I don't have family here, they gave me an initial 234 00:18:06,260 --> 00:18:10,240 bail, which was set at $10,500, which I 235 00:18:10,240 --> 00:18:11,870 think was too much. 236 00:18:11,870 --> 00:18:12,835 Don't you think so? 237 00:18:12,835 --> 00:18:14,630 [LAUGHTER] 238 00:18:14,630 --> 00:18:17,170 FERNANDO LOPEZ: The only way I got out was through the 239 00:18:17,170 --> 00:18:19,220 community that I'm part of. 240 00:18:19,220 --> 00:18:23,720 They collected money, wrote letters, and they got a lawyer 241 00:18:23,720 --> 00:18:25,740 and got me released. 242 00:18:25,740 --> 00:18:29,590 But I still faced the deportation process. 243 00:18:29,590 --> 00:18:32,890 I have to return to court next April. 244 00:18:32,890 --> 00:18:35,870 So next time you meet for your General Assembly, I 245 00:18:35,870 --> 00:18:39,200 might not be here. 246 00:18:39,200 --> 00:18:42,110 But this problem goes beyond me. 247 00:18:42,110 --> 00:18:45,470 What I'm going through is what our community goes 248 00:18:45,470 --> 00:18:47,620 through every day. 249 00:18:47,620 --> 00:18:52,390 I was lucky, because I'm part of an organization, which is 250 00:18:52,390 --> 00:18:57,830 Puente, that has been working to get Arpaio out to 251 00:18:57,830 --> 00:19:02,076 shut down tent city. 252 00:19:02,076 --> 00:19:10,350 [APPLAUSE] 253 00:19:10,350 --> 00:19:11,200 FERNANDO LOPEZ: Thank you. 254 00:19:11,200 --> 00:19:16,260 After my experience, and see what I see every day, as 255 00:19:16,260 --> 00:19:20,440 someone who went through the process, and having inspiring 256 00:19:20,440 --> 00:19:26,770 people always around me, I'm ready to shut down tent city. 257 00:19:26,770 --> 00:19:32,950 [APPLAUSE] 258 00:19:32,950 --> 00:19:36,900 FERNANDO LOPEZ: The only question, tonight, is if all 259 00:19:36,900 --> 00:19:38,590 of you are with me. 260 00:19:38,590 --> 00:19:41,625 [APPLAUSE] 261 00:19:41,625 --> 00:19:42,623 FERNANDO LOPEZ: Thank you. 262 00:19:42,623 --> 00:19:51,020 [APPLAUSE] 263 00:19:51,020 --> 00:19:51,270 VIRIDIANA HERNANDEZ: Hi. 264 00:19:51,270 --> 00:19:54,070 My name is Viridiana Hernandez. 265 00:19:54,070 --> 00:19:56,040 And I'm also an undocumented student. 266 00:19:56,040 --> 00:19:58,940 I was brought to Arizona when I was one-year-old. 267 00:19:58,940 --> 00:20:01,450 And recently turned 21. 268 00:20:01,450 --> 00:20:05,310 On March 20, 2012, me, along with five other students, 269 00:20:05,310 --> 00:20:09,890 decided to be part of a civil disobedience action. 270 00:20:09,890 --> 00:20:16,800 An action that led up to us being arrested and face 271 00:20:16,800 --> 00:20:19,690 Sheriff Joe Arpaio. 272 00:20:19,690 --> 00:20:22,090 The reason we decided to do that, actually, was because we 273 00:20:22,090 --> 00:20:22,830 were tired. 274 00:20:22,830 --> 00:20:26,390 We challenged Arpaio, because he always goes to our 275 00:20:26,390 --> 00:20:30,220 communities and makes us live in fear. 276 00:20:30,220 --> 00:20:33,320 I have been conditioned to live in fear, in my own 277 00:20:33,320 --> 00:20:37,590 community, conditioned to be afraid of the police, to be 278 00:20:37,590 --> 00:20:40,330 afraid of our law enforcement and people who are supposed to 279 00:20:40,330 --> 00:20:42,860 protect us. 280 00:20:42,860 --> 00:20:46,040 The first time that I decided to become involved was after 281 00:20:46,040 --> 00:20:48,250 the passage of SB 1070. 282 00:20:48,250 --> 00:20:52,990 When my mom took me to school that day, to my night class, 283 00:20:52,990 --> 00:20:56,120 and she said, I'll be back for you. 284 00:20:56,120 --> 00:20:59,130 But I didn't know if she was going to be back. 285 00:20:59,130 --> 00:21:01,820 And a lot of me doubted that she would, because I was 286 00:21:01,820 --> 00:21:06,070 unsure what this signage of the law meant. 287 00:21:06,070 --> 00:21:07,990 Because I was a student who didn't know 288 00:21:07,990 --> 00:21:10,850 what her options were. 289 00:21:10,850 --> 00:21:13,200 Two years later, when I decided to do that action and 290 00:21:13,200 --> 00:21:17,300 be arrested, it was for a lot more than myself in a lot more 291 00:21:17,300 --> 00:21:18,570 than my family. 292 00:21:18,570 --> 00:21:21,530 It was for our community, that has been 293 00:21:21,530 --> 00:21:25,020 conditioned to live in fear. 294 00:21:25,020 --> 00:21:29,810 And when we decided to become arrested, it took them three 295 00:21:29,810 --> 00:21:31,830 hours to arrest us-- 296 00:21:31,830 --> 00:21:33,620 or more, four hours-- 297 00:21:33,620 --> 00:21:35,500 because they were afraid of us. 298 00:21:35,500 --> 00:21:38,440 They were afraid of a group of people who were finally ready 299 00:21:38,440 --> 00:21:39,200 to stand up. 300 00:21:39,200 --> 00:21:51,010 [APPLAUSE] 301 00:21:51,010 --> 00:21:52,490 VIRIDIANA HERNANDEZ: And seeing our community come 302 00:21:52,490 --> 00:21:55,830 together that day kept those students-- 303 00:21:55,830 --> 00:21:57,300 the six of us that were there, sitting and 304 00:21:57,300 --> 00:21:58,300 waiting to be arrested-- 305 00:21:58,300 --> 00:22:01,550 the courage to continue with this action. 306 00:22:01,550 --> 00:22:04,140 Nothing could've prepared as, though, for what we were going 307 00:22:04,140 --> 00:22:07,470 to be waiting for in that jail. 308 00:22:07,470 --> 00:22:10,220 I had to wait a long time, finally, until they took me 309 00:22:10,220 --> 00:22:13,170 into the jail, because I did not want to give my parents' 310 00:22:13,170 --> 00:22:15,700 information, when I was asked by nice agent. 311 00:22:15,700 --> 00:22:18,330 And so they sat me down and told me that, regardless of 312 00:22:18,330 --> 00:22:20,720 whether I wanted to give it to them, I had to. 313 00:22:20,720 --> 00:22:22,680 I told them I wouldn't, and so they sat me down. 314 00:22:22,680 --> 00:22:25,060 And I waited about two hours, until finally, they saw that I 315 00:22:25,060 --> 00:22:26,260 wasn't going to give it to them. 316 00:22:26,260 --> 00:22:28,550 And they kept the process. 317 00:22:28,550 --> 00:22:30,523 And then, once I was in jail-- thank you. 318 00:22:30,523 --> 00:22:34,550 [APPLAUSE] 319 00:22:34,550 --> 00:22:36,135 VIRIDIANA HERNANDEZ: Once I was in the cell, with the 320 00:22:36,135 --> 00:22:38,090 other two members-- 321 00:22:38,090 --> 00:22:42,150 throughout the whole process, we went to two different jails 322 00:22:42,150 --> 00:22:43,900 to get processed, before we arrived at the 323 00:22:43,900 --> 00:22:45,260 Fourth Avenue Jail. 324 00:22:45,260 --> 00:22:48,450 Throughout that, we were the only women in there, the only 325 00:22:48,450 --> 00:22:51,230 women being transferred from jail to jail. 326 00:22:51,230 --> 00:22:54,220 We were the only women being processed 327 00:22:54,220 --> 00:22:55,980 throughout the whole time. 328 00:22:55,980 --> 00:22:59,470 And I started crying, because I felt myself afraid. 329 00:22:59,470 --> 00:23:02,020 But I wasn't afraid of what was going to happen to me. 330 00:23:02,020 --> 00:23:05,040 I wasn't afraid of what was happening. 331 00:23:05,040 --> 00:23:07,780 I was crying, because I could imagine my mom being in that 332 00:23:07,780 --> 00:23:08,970 same position-- 333 00:23:08,970 --> 00:23:13,000 a strong woman who knows minimal English, 334 00:23:13,000 --> 00:23:14,410 who knows her rights. 335 00:23:14,410 --> 00:23:16,000 But at that moment, you completely 336 00:23:16,000 --> 00:23:17,005 forget what's happening. 337 00:23:17,005 --> 00:23:19,340 You forget what you're trying to say and what 338 00:23:19,340 --> 00:23:22,030 you shouldn't say. 339 00:23:22,030 --> 00:23:25,000 And that's what I was thinking about the whole time. 340 00:23:25,000 --> 00:23:26,720 When I got to cell, it was cold. 341 00:23:26,720 --> 00:23:28,950 It was a cold that I had never experienced before. 342 00:23:28,950 --> 00:23:31,070 My bones were aching. 343 00:23:31,070 --> 00:23:33,170 They refused to give us a blanket, because they said we 344 00:23:33,170 --> 00:23:35,050 messed with the wrong people. 345 00:23:35,050 --> 00:23:37,420 They refused to give us food, because we wasn't until 6:00 346 00:23:37,420 --> 00:23:39,510 AM in the morning. 347 00:23:39,510 --> 00:23:41,415 And when they brought the food, they threw it into our 348 00:23:41,415 --> 00:23:46,560 cell, like you would feed animals. 349 00:23:46,560 --> 00:23:48,890 And it was through a hole in the side. 350 00:23:48,890 --> 00:23:51,130 And all I could see was all I could see through a little 351 00:23:51,130 --> 00:23:53,320 window from the cell. 352 00:23:53,320 --> 00:23:55,960 And even then, when we were afraid and we want 353 00:23:55,960 --> 00:23:57,040 to just call it. 354 00:23:57,040 --> 00:23:58,570 We wanted it to just say, we're done. 355 00:23:58,570 --> 00:24:00,330 We can't do this. 356 00:24:00,330 --> 00:24:00,940 I'm sorry. 357 00:24:00,940 --> 00:24:02,295 I didn't want to get arrested. 358 00:24:02,295 --> 00:24:05,390 There was a lot of times that I actually felt like that. 359 00:24:05,390 --> 00:24:08,250 But we also had to remember that even in that jail, even 360 00:24:08,250 --> 00:24:11,470 at that moment, we were still privileged, because the 361 00:24:11,470 --> 00:24:13,480 cameras were on. 362 00:24:13,480 --> 00:24:16,090 The cameras were on for us. 363 00:24:16,090 --> 00:24:18,530 But there's thousands of people who are in there. 364 00:24:18,530 --> 00:24:20,290 And there are thousands of people who are still in there, 365 00:24:20,290 --> 00:24:22,840 where the cameras are not on for them. 366 00:24:22,840 --> 00:24:25,300 No one is looking. 367 00:24:25,300 --> 00:24:27,170 And now I'm out. 368 00:24:27,170 --> 00:24:28,870 But I still remember that there's thousands 369 00:24:28,870 --> 00:24:30,630 of people in there. 370 00:24:30,630 --> 00:24:32,780 And so, that's what we're going to go do now. 371 00:24:32,780 --> 00:24:34,770 We're going to go and shut down tent city. 372 00:24:34,770 --> 00:24:37,390 But at same time, this year, we're going to get 373 00:24:37,390 --> 00:24:38,906 Arpaio out of office. 374 00:24:38,906 --> 00:24:43,766
