You Are Welcome Here: A Look at the Support Network for Immigrants to the U.S.
November 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm ESTFree
As we continue to navigate a new world in ever-changing immigration policies, the work of advocacy and activism to support immigrants has not changed, it has only intensified. But what can YOU do? Join Leti Bueno, a social change advocate and former board member of Austin-based Casa Marianella’s immigrant shelter, as she leads and guides a discussion on immigration justice, activism, and advocacy. We will examine the vital support of organizations and volunteers across the country, and their direct impact on improving the lives of our newly arrived community members. Get inspired and come away with a concrete action plan on how to join these efforts and gain a better understanding of the connectedness and powerful effects of organizations and people who continue to say YOU ARE WELCOME HERE!
Leti Bueno, Austin, TX-based Project Coordinator for Music to Life, and Development Manager with Groundwork Music Project. In her roles with these two different nonprofit organizations, Leti navigates between supporting access to music for children all over Austin and working with Texas musicians as they bring together their art and activism to create social change.
