The Right to Remain

Mar 7, 2017

No matter what side we’re on, discussion leading to understanding, new insights, and even a new perspective is never a negative.

On Thursday, March 9, YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley‘s “Talking the Talk” series continues. The aim is to “bring our community together to discuss hot button topics and strive to come up with solutions.”

The discussions are moderated and created so we can hear different points of view, feel safe revealing our own viewpoint, and finding where we have common ground.

The March 9 discussion is titled “The Right to Remain” and will examine current immigration policies and actions one might take “against harmful policies.” The YWCA will be providing “emergency packets” for undocumented workers with children who are U.S. citizens.

Ernst Fenelon, Jr. is moderator. Nora Phillips addresses the current state of immigration in America, Tarek Shawky explains one’s rights, Juliana Serrano advises how to address the City Council, and Angelica Salas is the Executive Director of CHIRLA (Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles).

This event is in partnership with the YWCA Southern California Pasadena-Foothill Chapter, Day One, PACTL (Pasadena/Altadena Coalition of Transformative Leaders, San Gabriel Valley LGBTQ Center, and the ACLU.
