When immigrants arrive in the United States, we face racism, poverty, brokenness, and disconnection from our cultures. Along this journey, we have learned to claim our wisdom and unique perspectives, developed new and alternative models for ways to fight for social justice, and connected our personal healing and liberation work to our community organizing.

In this lecture, Blanca Pacheco, Co-Director of the New Sanctuary Movement, will reflect on her journey as a community organizer and share the current work of NSM. She will offer tools for reflection on our connections to immigrant experiences and our own tools of resistance to fight for justice.
