Workshop Goal: to prepare participants to meaningfully advocate with and for immigrants who are at risk of deportation.
About this Event
Please join the Central Ohio Worker Center for an introductory training on deportation defense campaigns. You will learn the basics of immigrant-led organizing, how immigration law works, and how and why people are arrested, detained, and deported. You'll also learn how you can help prevent deportation, and provide meaningful support for immigrant families. This workshop is particularly suited for social service providers, health care professionals, educators, and attorneys who have clients/students who are at risk of deportation. You do not have to be a social worker; this is a public event.
YOU MUST REGISTER through EventBrite in order to attend. Removal defense is a sensitive topic and we take the safety of our presenters and attendees very seriously. Citizenship not required. More information will be distributed by email to all registered participants before the event. Class size is limited to *50*, so register soon.
This workshop is presented by COWC Board Members Austin Kocher and Jessica Camacho, and sponsored by the National Association of Social Workers, Ohio Chapter.
