Tucson Grassroots Campaigns
Tucson Grassroots Campaigns is a non-profit video project that documents successful grassroots campaigns in Tucson, Arizona. This video project examines community organizing methods, planning, and nonviolent strategy for positive social change.
Act One: El Rio
In 1968, the City of Tucson purchased El Rio Country Club, a lush golf course in Tucson’s west side.
Why not change the El Rio golf course into a place for the people? West side residents wanted a park and neighborhood center.
El Rio is the story of a community fight for a more democratic use of the land.
