In this roundtable discussion, activist organizers will discuss their work in immigrant justice movements in both national and local contexts, particularly in Chicago. The panelists will speak to their personal experiences in becoming grassroots organizers against detentions, deportations, and the criminalization of immigrant and other targeted communities. Providing examples from past and current campaigns, they will also speak to the range of strategies they use to build strong collaborative coalitions and resist racist, xenophobic oppression, including policy work, legal activism, strategic communications, and civil disobedience.
