Throughout the year, we’ve all worked tirelessly to fend off the anti-immigrant fervor gripping the nation and construct a future in which everyone in the U.S.—regardless of their income or where they were born— can work without being exploited, support their family, and live with dignity. But more often than not, we’ve focused on discrete issues that affect immigrants’ lives, and toiled in dispersed regions and locations. We’ve been able to join forces sporadically, and sometimes only briefly.
On December 8-10, hundreds of immigrants’ rights leaders, experts and activists from across the country will come together in Washington, DC. Here’s your chance to join us for three stimulating and intensive days focused on collectively shaping immigrants’ rights advocacy agendas for 2012.
