Immigration and Workers Rights Training w/ Cosecha
Cosecha is coming to Baltimore to meet with local organizer's on the values and importance of May 1- a day without an immigrant and national strike.
Cosecha is a new nonviolent movement fighting for permanent protection, dignity, and respect for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. Our name, "harvest" in Spanish, honors the long tradition of farmworker organizing and the present-day pain of the thousands of undocumented workers whose labor continues to feed the country. Committed to winning real victories for our community, Cosecha believes in using non-cooperation to leverage the power of immigrant labor and consumption and force a meaningful shift in public opinion.

CASA will also present and share their mobilizing efforts. They're organizing a hearing next week, on Thursday, April 6, lifting up issues critical to the immigrant community in public testimony. CASA FB event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/179534395891909
