with Sociology Club and Juntos Podemos
SALINAS, Calif. – On , Hartnell College in conjunction with the Sociology Club, and the Juntos Podemos Committee, will host a community dialogue and forum titled Know your Immigration Rights.
The goal of the forum is to provide information to immigrants about their rights and offer a space for community dialogue. Latino immigrants in our area have many questions. This community forum is the place to discuss topics like your rights as an undocumented immigrant, the meaning of sanctuary city, what is a secure community, and much more.
“The Know Your Rights Workshop that was organized on March 4, 2017 at Hartnell College attracted over 160 participants representing diverse agencies in Monterey and Santa Cruz County,” shared Sociology Professor, Hortencia Jimenez, Ph.D. “As a follow-up, Hartnell College joins the efforts in organizing a community immigration forum given the anxiety that immigrants continue to have in Salinas.”
