Economic Autonomy in the Immigrants' Rights Movement/ Economia autonoma en el movimiento de derechos a los inmigrantes

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As we build a more robust movement towards economic autonomy, it is necessary for us to build accountability to different people's struggles for self-determination. As the fight for immigrants' rights continues, it is necessary for us to explore the capitalist exploitation of immigrants and how to overcome it. This will be a space to consider these and other topics pertaining to the crossover between the new economy and immigrants' rights.

A medida que vamos construyendo un movimiento más fuerte para la autonomía económica, es necesario  que desarrollemos la transparencia de los desafíos que otras personas enfrentan para obtener su autodeterminación. A medida que la lucha por derechos a los inmigrantes continúa, es necesario que nosotros exploremos la explotación capitalista de los inmigrantes y cómo vencerla. Este será un espacio para considerar estos y otras temas pertinentes a la mezcla entre la nueva economía y derechos al inmigrante.

Este taller se llevará a cabo en Inglés y en Español. Todos son bienvenidos; todos los participantes no bilingües se les proporcionaran equipo auriculares de interpretación. Límite: 40 participantes no bilingües.
