Organized Labor, Immigrants, and the Rights of All Workers
From the origins of May Day in the 1880s to the unprecedented immigrant rights marches of 2006, immigrants have been an integral part of organized labor, and their struggles have underlined the rights of all workers. Any attempt to separate “workers” from “immigrants” is patently ahistorical. This panel will explore the history of immigrant workers in labor organizing up to the present-day convergence of labor, immigrant rights, and social justice movements in the U.S.
Speakers:
David Bacon, Adriana Garcia, Fred Hirsch, Fritz Conle.

I'm a Native American or Indigenous elder and here to say that vocabulary powerful and when you use the word immigrant for indigenous people you reinforce the illegal borders. "We did not cross the borders the borders crossed us" is the saying of the Migrant movement that has been here for thousands of years. "Who are you calling Immigrant Pilgrim".
