67 Sueños And Immigrant Justice: Working For Narrative And Culture Change

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

AFSC's Oakland-based "67 Sueños Collective" ("67 Dreams," after the 67 percent of young people who would not be affected by the DREAM Act) holds monthly encounters or "Encuentros" with undocumented youth from across the Bay Area. Their focus is to build solidarity, and to record their testimonies/stories in hopes to build awareness about the issues they face and to bear witness to their American experience. Collective members Pablo Paredes, Linda Sanchez, Maria Cruz, Litzy Castilla, and Ericson Amya will present on how to work to change the narrative around immigrants and achieve immigration policies that are inclusive for all, not just a select few who are served by the current executive order on immigration. Join AFSC's corporation members (a body of over 150 Quakers who help govern AFSC's work who will be assembling in Philadelphia for an annual meeting) for this free, public event. The event will take place in the Worship Room at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street. The venue is wheelchair accessible. Please share the invite and encourage your friends and community to join.
