Southwest Workers Union & RAICES will be collaborating to present a workshop that shares information on how to stay protected if you are undocumented. There is much uncertainty on what to expect in the coming years for our undocumented communities. This workshop will help those that may not qualify for relief and start the discussions on sanctuary spaces and ally solidarity. Safe space open to community and free event.
