Engaging African Immigrants in California

The Black Immigration Network and USC Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration invite you to attend a discussion on:

Engagement and Mobilization of African Immigrants in the Immigrant Rights Movement

Wednesday, April 22, 2015
12:30 – 2:00 pm
Tutor Campus Center, Rosen
Family Screening Theater, Room 227


Featured speakers: Amaha Kassa, African Communities Together, Tia Oso, Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI) and Black Immigration Network (BIN), Cathy Cha, Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund, moderated by: Manuel Pastor, Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration.

Description: Immigration has made California proudly one of the most racially diverse states in the nation. Immigrant communities from various African countries are fast- growing but least visible and integrated. We invite you to join us to learn more about the changing demographics in California as they relate to African communities, as well as to have a conversation of how to better integrate and engage African communities into the mainstream immigrant rights movement. Join CSII, in collaboration with allies across the state, to identify emerging trends and community leaders to analyze statewide data for effective inclusionary policy and practice.

Following the program, BIN will hold a community conversation “Building Kinship in LA” on connecting African-American and Black Immigrant Communities. Wednesday April 22 at 6:30 to 8:30pm.  RSVP HERE.
