What’s Next for RISE and Immigrant Rights?
There is still much work to accomplish and many hands that are reaching out to build on the very strong immigrant rights work that has taken place so far. For those of you who missed our last RISE Immigrant Rights Working Group meeting, we discussed several other local initiatives our members will be working on over the next months:
1) House parties in RISE members’ homes to raise funds to support legal services for local immigrants facing deportation hearings;
2) Continuing to work with other community groups to offer Know Your Rights workshops in appropriate languages for local immigrants and families;
3) Continuing support of sanctuary efforts;
5) Continuing to place Know Your Rights information and Everyone is Welcome Here in several languages in local business locations;
4) Planning cultural celebrations, like a Salsa Dance Party, in Rozzie to build ties among our diverse residents and to restore spirits for the work ahead.
