Sustainable Saturday Night, June 25th

Responding to Hate with Love and Solidarity
25th June, at James Reeb UU Congregation, 6 p.m. potluck and 7 p.m. presentation

Join us for this exciting presentation by Latino community activists on the latest updates and concerns about the struggles faced by immigrants and Central American refugees in Dane County!

Our guest speakers will be Ramón Argandona of Voces de la Frontera’s new Madison chapter, and Carlos Miranda from the Workers Rights Center’s Latino Workers Project, about the most recent workplace report, “Struggling for a Better Life,” and recommendations to stop the abuse and exploitation of Latino workers in Dane County.Ramón will talk about the new Madison Chapter of Voces and how the Latino immigrant and refugee communities in Dane County are responding to the new wave of ICE raids and deportations against Central American refugees, focusing on women and children asylum-seekers, in this era of fear-mongering, racism and hate coming from politicians and white supremacists. In addition, a DACA high school student from Madison will speak about her struggle to get financial aid so she can fulfill her dream of going to college.

Sustainable Saturday Nights are a joint project of the Occupy Madison Tiny Home Village, the James Reeb Peace Justice and Sustainability Group, the Eastside Planning Council, and the Emerson East Sustainability Task Force. They are on the 4th Saturday of the month (except in December). They are free, family friendly, start with a potluck at 6pm, followed by with a program at 7pm.
