2019 PA Statewide Immigrant & Refugee Rights Convening
Jun 9, 2019
The fourth annual statewide Immigrant and Refugee Rights Convening is scheduled for June 9-10, 2019 at the Hilton Hotel in Harrisburg. As we continue to face an extreme anti-immigrant agenda at the federal level, it is more important than ever to build local coalitions and partnerships to defend our communities and fight for the policies we need. Join immigrant and refugee communities, grassroots organizations, advocates, and allies from across the state for workshops, networking sessions, and opportunities to meet with legislators.
The Convening will bring together members of the immigrant and refugee communities, grassroots organizations, advocates, and allies from across the state, and will include workshops, networking sessions, and opportunities to meet with legislators to educate them on issues important to immigrant and refugee communities.
Topics to be covered include: community-based strategies to resist and defend against increased enforcement; building political and electoral power for immigrant and refugee communities; and strategies to fight for pro-immigrant policies in challenging political times.
