To: Latino and Latina Roundtable members and friends:
We are asking each member to attend this forum and to reach out to at least two people between now and Wednesday and let them know about the forum.
“Forum On the Good and the Bad of Immigration Legislation”
When: Wednesday, August 28th, 2013
Time: 6:15 – 9 PM
Where: Pomona Unified School District Board Room
800 South Garey Ave. Pomona, CA 91766
What: This forum will inform the community on the status of immigration legislation. There have been many victories won in California in recent years for immigrant rights and presently there is the possibility of passing a driver’s license bill. Our coalitions continue to work for the legalization of the 12 million undocumented but with no provisions that would result in their criminalization. This event will shed light on these efforts as well as analyze the Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill S-744 on a federal level. At this time, the majority of people in the U. S. want undocumented persons to receive legal status and eventually citizenship. This forum will discuss who and what is standing in the way of passing immigrant rights legislation that would truly serve the interests of our communities and what everyone can do to pass legislation that will serve the common good.
Sponsors: The 28ers, The Latino and Latina Roundtable; Inland Empire Immigrant Youth Coalition, and The Justice for Immigrants Coalition.
