Community Dialogue on Worker Rights and Immigration Reform
Organized by Portland JwJ’s Immigrant Rights Committee

These are critical times in the struggle for immigrant and workers rights, immigration reform is being debated in Washington DC and likely to pass in a few months. This is an issue that affects all workers in our country as well as globally. We are inviting you to a forum where we will hear from immigrant and US born workers whose jobs and livelihoods have been affected by trade and the global economy.  We will hear from workers who have seen their employers undercut wages and benefits and how those who benefit from this exploitation promote division between workers. 

These issues affect all workers and our ability to fight for our rights in the work place as well as our ability to re-build the broken economy.  We invite you to join us as we listen to each other and share ideas on possible directions to help build worker power in the context of the immigration reform debate.

THEME:

“Labor Rights and Migration, Building Worker Power Through Solidarity.”

GOAL:

This event will contribute to the national dialogue between workers in the context of Immigration Reform and put the voices of workers up in the national debate.
