In the wake of the Trump victory, anti-immigrant forces stand to gain more power to carry out policies intended to marginalize, belittle and exclude immigrant communities. While some were targeted explicitly by President-elect Trump during his campaign (undocumented people, Muslims, and many others) we know that there is a great deal of uncertainty about what the future holds for all immigrants.
In the face of such uncertainty, Local 4121 members are reaching out to strengthen coalitions with advocates off campus but also hosting this forum to ensure that international students and scholars from UW have an opportunity to bring our voices and experiences together to develop a collective response. All UW students and scholars will be welcome to this event to learn about your rights and strategize a movement that actively protects those most vulnerable to hostile immigration reform under the Trump administration. This event will include information from community leaders, UAW members, and an attorney who can answer questions. Most importantly, it will be a space to build collective power.
