Beyond Know Your Rights: The Spectrum of State Violence on Immigrant Communities

This workshop will raise awareness of the challenges that undocumented and mixed-status families face under the Trump administration beyond "Good/Bad Immigrant" rhetoric. Policies that restrict communities of immigrants' ability to live, work, and love with dignity have physical as well as psychological effects on families; for this reason, the immigrant and reproductive justice movements are one and the same. In addition to reflecting on some of the tactics used to police poor immigrant communities of color, participants will work in small groups to better understand the timeline of racist anti-immigrant policies that are already in place. This conversation will center and affirm the resistance and experiences of individuals from the communities directly affected by this violence, especially those living at the most vulnerable intersections of our society, but we invite individuals who work directly with these communities to equip themselves with this critical knowledge.
