Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder, Colorado
5001 Pennsylvania Ave, Boulder, Colorado 80303
A 3-part workshop series co-sponsored by Unitarian Universalist Church, First Congregational Church, Boulder Sanctuary Coalition, Boulder CAN and Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition (CIRC).
This series of workshops is designed to inform Allies about the ins and outs of the immigration system- so that we can:
1. understand more about the current immigration system and unjust deportation, both before and since the recent presidential election. Including understanding the history of US Policies that have contributed to the current situation.
2. be clear on the challenges and struggles the immigrant community faces, starting with the basics.
3. be tuned in to and understand what new Executive Orders mean for the immigrant community.
4. be ready to act in solidarity.
WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?
This conversation will provide a general overview of the current immigration system, and how the recent executive orders on immigration are rolling out in communities across the country. More importantly, with so many allies stepping up and offering support, we will talk about what it means to have «citizenship privilege» and how you can use this power in an effective and meaningful way to show your solidarity with immigrants in our community and help take a stand against harsh immigration enforcement policies.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Concerned community members interested in better understanding how the current immigration system works (and why it's broken), and how the new Executive Orders on immigration are rolling out in our communities.
Allies wishing to use their «citizenship privilege» to be better allies to impacted individuals.
Individuals wanting to do «something» to help out and show solidarity with our immigrant community.
THIS IS THE FIRST IN A 3-PART SERIES OF WORKSHOPS.
Each session will be independent and free-standing. Session 2 is scheduled for September 18th, 7-9pm.
The workshop will include a talk by community activists Erika Blum and Ana Casas, and time for Q and A's at the end.
