As the COVID-19 pandemic upends life for hundreds of millions around the world, immigrant communities, their families, and especially those held in detention will be among the very hardest hit.
As we raise our voices here in the U.S. to defend our health, our communities, and the interdependent economy we all rely on, we must also prioritize the most vulnerable among us.
Please join us for a webcast on Thursday March 26th at 7PM Eastern (6 Central and 4 Pacific). Ted Lewis and Marco Castillo, of Global Exchange, will dig into these urgent issues with people working on the frontlines with these at risk communities.
Confirmed participants include: •Jorge Torres, Northeast Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network; •Becky Smith, social worker with Legal Services in New York City; and a member of the staff from the Dilley (Texas) Pro Bono Project, a group that works to defend detainees and their families.
Please join us live. We’d like to address your questions, as we look at the stark vulnerabilities of those in communities already under attack --- and especially those without documents, refugees, asylum seekers, and detainees.
