Cross Racial Alliance Building for Social Justice and Immigrant Rights

Leading advocates and organizers will share about building cross-racial and ethnic alliances for immigrant rights and racial justice fights in their communities across the country. We'll be speaking about key areas and best practices we've found in our collaborative work amongst African American, Latino, Chinese, Afro-Diasporic, and Caribbean communities as well as offering examples of our work. The workshop will be interactive and we will offer take-home tools and materials for people who are interested in doing the work.

Speakers: Abraham Paulos, Opal Tometi, Erika Almiron, Gustavo Andrade
