UNCOVER THE TRUTH TEACH-IN
Please join us on:
Monday May 17th from 2:00 pm EST- 3:30 pm EST
Learn some first steps local communities can take to oppose the staggering growth of police-ICE partnerships that are led to the civil rights crisis in Arizona.
The teach-in is part of the national “Uncovering the Truth Behind Police and ICE Collaboration” campaign.
The teach-in will empower local communities new to the issues to gain information and generate a public discourse about programs that threaten public safety, systemize racial profiling, and destroy communities. Currently, these programs are being implemented at breakneck speed with little public information or government oversight. As one example, ICE plans to implement Secure Communities in all jails by 2013.
The teach-in is designed for local groups and community members from diverse fields—including immigration, criminal justice, labor, faith, and domestic violence groups—interested in challenging the current or imminent threat of police-ICE partnerships in their community.
The call is not open to government or media representatives.
This teach-in will primarily guide participants through a toolkit developed by The National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild, the National Immigration Law Center, and National Day Laborer Organizing Network that incorporates valuable advice and resources to help communities gather information and uncover the truth.
