On February 13th, the Heads Up Collective Presents... The Domestic Impacts of the "War on Terrorism" and What You Can Do Over 1000 immigrants are being held by the FBI due to racial and religious profiling. Their names have not been released. Civil liberties have been curtailed. Hate crimes against anyone perceived to be Arab or Muslim have skyrocketed. Meanwhile, Congress can find $15 billion to bailout the long-troubled airline industry, but voted down $1.9 billion in relief to laid-off workers in the airline, tourism, and service industries. As we strengthen our work against the war and move towards social justice, we need to continue to learn about issues happening nationally and internationally and to educate ourselves about the impacts they have locally. We are honored to have Elly Kugler of INS Watch and the Day Labor Program speak about how the "war on terrorism" is impacting immigrant communities, political movements, and communties of color in the US. Her presentation will be followed by a discussion of how the war impacts our organizing for social justice and what we can do to take action an support immigrant rights struggles. The Heads Up Collective is an independent project initiated by the Challenging White Supremacy Collective. Our goal is to organize against the "war on terrorism" with a central principle of anti-racism. Though this event is predominantly aimed at white, social justice activists all are welcome. Join us as we build support for immigrant rights struggles in the Bay Area. We are asking for a donation of $5-$10 (no one turned away due to lack of funds)
