Conference on Immigrant Rights
There’s no doubt that immigration and immigrant rights are hot topics. But many worry that much gets lost in a wave of political jargon and that all sides are not equally heard, which is why the National Immigrant Solidarity Network is hosting a three-day conference of workshops at the University of Richmond beginning Friday.
Workshop topics will include congressional legislation, multi-ethnic organizing and militarization of the border. The film Reel Bad Arabs, which examines stereotypical “evil” Arabs in Hollywood blockbusters, will also be shown. Registration is $20 or $15 for students.
