We are excited to invite you to the fourth annual Statewide Immigrant and Refugee Rights Convening!
June 9-10, 2019
Hilton Harrisburg, Harrisburg PA
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
- 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 challenging political times
- General Attendance: $110.00
- General Attendance – Sunday Only: $90.00
- PICC Member Rate (includes all staff & volunteers of PICC member organizations): $80.00
