Bosses use ICE and the threat of deportation to intimidate workers and deny them their rights. Come exercise strategies to defend ourselves from La Migra.
We will roleplay recent workplace scenarios, share legal and organizing strategies used by organizers and workers (including Chinese Progressive Association, East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy and the International Longshore and Warehouse Worker's Union), and brainstorm creative tactics for building collective power on and off the job site.
Scenerios we will cover include no-match social security number verification letters, unpaid wages, and snitches for the ICE.
This workshop will honor particularly the work experiences of immigrant women of color and transwomen. Respect the space.
Translation and childcare provided. Please RSVP to daysinaprilcollective [at] gmail.com, if possible.
