Undocumented and Unafraid

Undocumented and Unafraid- A talk and discussion on building migrant rights movements with US activist Carlos Saavedra

Wednesday 11th June, 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm, Assisi Community Hall, Lawford Gate
There will also be a private event for all Bristol Refugee Right members on Thursday 12th.

 Carlos Saavedra has helped train thousands of undocumented students in the United States to speak out about their stories. Together they built the DREAMers movement which has won some of the biggest success in migrant rights movements in over 25 years.

“The DREAM movement is about humanising the immigration debate and community knowledge building. ”

How can we learn from this experience in the UK and build an alternative to the toxic immigration ‘debate’?
