Raj Jayadev, De-Bug
Silicon Valley De-Bug is a collective of writers, artists, organizers, and workers based in San Jose, California. We are a project of Pacific News Service, a national news service located in San Francisco. De-Bug started in the Spring of 2000 by reporting on the hidden experiences of working people who were employed as low-wage temporary workers. As we grew as a collective we began exploring all of the issues of our community - in the workplace, schools, streets, relationships, and everything else. http://www.siliconvalleydebug.com/

Moderated by Dr. Sang Hea Kil

Jennifer Allen, Border Action Network
Border Action Network formed in 1999 and works with immigrant families and border communities in rural and urban areas along the Arizona border with Mexico to ensure that our rights are protected, our human dignity upheld and that our communities are healthy and safe places for everyone to live. We are a membership-based human rights community organization that combines grassroots organizing, leadership development, policy advocacy and litigation, when necessary. We have five staff and nearly 700 members. Border Action remains unique to Arizona—as a community-based, immigrant-led organization--we continue to build the voice and therefore, the political, social and economic power of immigrant families and border communities.
