We are excited to invite you to the third annual statewide Immigrant and Refugee Rights Convening!

The theme of this year's Convening is "Building Local Power"

In the face of an extreme anti-immigrant agenda at the federal and state levels, it is more important than ever to build alliances among immigrant and refugee communities and allies. Through local coalitions and partnerships we can build the power to defend our communities and fight for the policies we need. This year's Convening will bring together members of the immigrant and refugee communities, grassroots organizations, advocates, and allies from across the state, 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

  • How municipalities and counties can lead the way in creating a more welcoming state

  • Building political and electoral power for immigrant and refugee communities

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