September 10, 2020: Latinx TalkBack Latina Voices on Immigration

Hosted by CORE, Voces de la Frontera

The LatinX TalkBack is about the intersections and challenges of Blackness and Latinidad.

In this episode, we will cover the history of the past 25+ years of immigration reform in the United States. We will talk about our personal histories with immigration and migration and discuss the grassroots work that is being done for immigration reform.

Join us Thursday, September 10th at 8 PM for the Latinx TalkBack with Valeria Cerda (Civic Engagement Director, Wisconsin VOICES), Nancy Flores (Deputy Director, National Partnership for New Americans), Larissa Joanna (Voces de La Frontera) & Aissa Olivarez (Managing Attorney, Community Immigration Law Center (CILC)).

Partially sponsored by DANG! Grant by the Dane County Arts Commission.

***Although we try to represent all voices at each one of our #Latinxtalkback, we have a long way to go to break down hundreds of years of white supremacy, but as Latinos to refuse to be active in the Black Liberation movement is to deny ourselves as Latinos an alliance that is not just necessary but mandatory in the fight for our collective freedom for immigration reform and community justice.

Our promise to you is that we will continue to challenge ourselves to pass the mic and give voice to the Anti-Blackness that is ingrained in our community and often swept under the rug.
