Justin Tullius, Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES)
Workshop: "Make America Safe Again: rights, politics, and sanctuary in an uncharted era"
Justin joins us from Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families and refugees in Central and South Texas.
During his workshop, we will seek an engaged discussion of (1) Specific machineries of the U.S. immigration system which currently withhold safety from families, people who arrived in the U.S. as babies, refugees, and survivors of domestic violence; and how those realities are distorted in political discourse, (2) current examples of ways those groups and their communities use legal rights to reclaim safety, particularly in partnership with faith communities, and (3) what it can mean to offer sanctuary in 2017.
