|Event Type||Panel Discussion|
As we approach the 6th anniversary of the Iraq war, the San Francisco Immigrant and Legal Education Network will take this opportunity to have a discussion about the impact war has on global migration and how this manifests in our local communities.
We will examine parallels between war and other forced migrations as well as the subsequent treatment of immigrants due to various legislation, systems and policies.
We will have speaker presentations, an interactive slide show and audience testimonies and reflections.
We will also discuss upcoming actions and ways to act against war and abuses.
We would like to invite you to please join us next Tuesday for this important dialogue!
