State of Immigrant Rights in Massachusetts

All are welcome to this panel discussion on the State of Immigrant Rights in Massachusetts sponsored by Brookline Supporting Immigrants and United Parish's End Mass Incarceration group. The evening will include: (1) A ten minute fly-over review of the history of immigration policy in the U.S. trying to give some handles to grasp why immigration policy should be understood as one cog of the systematic racism machine. (2) An hour or so of presentation and Q&A with folks from Centro Presente focusing on threats to DACA and TPS (as well as these program's similarities and differences). This presentation will include a brief documentary Centro Presente has created about folks in Boston who have TPS (Temporary Protected Status) and why they have it. (3) An action/relationship building activity where attendees can write letters together to their representatives expressing their concern about these issues.
