Topic: Understanding Asylum Law. Steven Larin, Nationalities Service Center

 

In response to increased immigration enforcement in Pennsylvania, PICC will be hosting a series of trainings on how to implement a coordinated community-based response to create safer communities and stop unjust deportations and detentions.

Participants will learn about the “Community Resistance Zone” model, as implemented by Juntos in Philadelphia, and how to conduct strategic case-based campaigns that highlight injustices in the immigration system. This training will be interactive, allowing participants to practice new skills and plan how to begin a project in their local community. The training will be a full two days. Participants are expected to attend both days.

Skills and topics to be covered include:

  • How to conduct door-to-door conversations with community members
  • Recruiting allies to support immigrant-led campaigns
  • Understanding the immigration system and the detention and deportation process

NOTE: All PA is Ready! grantees participating in the Enforcement Resistance Initiative are required to send at least one staff (or equivalent) and 2-3 community leaders or volunteers to one of the three Enforcement Resistance trainings being offered

Shut Down Berks Lobby Training

Shut Down Berks Coalition

Join us via webinar to get prepared for your lobby visit to Governor’s Wolf office. He needs to hear from constituents that 2018 is the year he issues an Emergency Removal Order to ensure no new families are brought to the Berks County Detention Center.

This training will review the history of the center, how to lobby and the research that proves that the state of Pennsylvania can in fact issue an Emergency Removal Order.
