When: Mon, 08/01/2011 – 11:00am
As part of the 2nd Annual Latina Week of Action for Reproductive Rights, please join the National Coalition for Immigrant Women’s Rights (NCIWR) to discuss the important roles that immigrant women play in our communities and the increasing pressures they are experiencing with hostility and negative rhetoric meant to demonize them. This important phone call will discuss the negative rhetoric and the harmful programs that have stemmed from it. We will also give listeners a sneak preview of the Right to Liberty, Right to Family campaign that NCIWR will be launching in the fall.
