Last weekend, folks driving through the westside along Speedway Boulevard west of I-10 noticed a protest taking place in front of the Arizona School for the Deaf and the Blind. One person who definitely noticed, got out of his car and grabbed his camera is Chris Summitt. Summitt then did what he does best and posted a story along with the photos on his popular tumblr page, Protesting Arizona.

Those involved in local movements, from immigration to Mexican-American studies, are familiar with his work. He does a lot of other stuff, which is why we featured him in last week's cover story on crowd-source funding campaigns to talk about his campaign and how he went about choosing GoFundMe.

His campaign kicked off. Check it out here, and his slide show below to get an understanding of the range of his work and why supporting him is a good investment. Summitt's timing at the ASDB was wonderful, but the fact that he took the time is an example of his good character and why we're lucky to have him in Tucson.
