2019 Immigrant and Refugee Right Convening

 Registration is closed for this event

We are excited to invite you to the fourth annual Statewide Immigrant and Refugee Rights Convening!


As we continue to face an extreme anti-immigrant agenda at the federal level, it is more important than ever to build local coalitions and partnerships to defend our communities and fight for the policies we need. This Convening will bring together members of the immigrant and refugee communities, grassroots organizations, advocates, and allies from across Pennsylvania, and will include workshops, networking sessions, and opportunities to meet with legislators to educate them on issues important to immigrant and refugee communities. 

Topics to be covered include:

  • Community-based strategies to resist and defend against increased enforcement

  • Building political and electoral power for immigrant and refugee communities

  • Strategies to fight for pro-immigrant policies in challenging political times

Register by April 13, 2019 for an early-registration discount!
