About the Conference


 http://www.immigrantsolidarity.org/2006Conference/about.html





 


 


The success of May 1st's "A Day Without
Immigrants" has been an historical turning point for the immigrant
rights movement. The National Immigrant Solidarity Network was one of the
main groups who helped to organize the historical Los Angeles March 25th
"Gran Marcha" and the national May 1st "A Day Without
Immigrants" boycott/strike (Please visit  http://www.NoHR4437.org).

At this point it's vitally important for the immigrant rights movement to
keep the momentum going, and there's an urgent need for national meeting
in which community/grassroots immigrant activists can meet face-to-face to
discuss how to build a new national, broad-based, immigrant rights/civil
rights movement, and to set a 6-9 month national strategy for actions.

We envision this is a broad-based,
multiethnic conference of organizers, and we are inviting organizers from
African American, African immigrant, Asian American, Latino/Latina,
Arab-Muslim-North African, progressive labor, interfaith, LGBT, student,
anti-war/peace and global justice groups from across the country.
Points of Unity
We ask the conference participants to endorse the Ten
Points for Immigrant Rights, draft by the Los Angeles March 25th Coalition:
- No to the anti-immigrant HR4437 and
any other "copycat" legislation from Congress
- No to militarization of the border
- No to criminalization of immigrant communities
- No to the planned immigrant crackdown across the country
- No to the guest worker program
- No to the Employer Sanction
- Yes to amnesty for undocumented
immigrants
- Yes to immigrant family reunification
- Yes to a humane path to citizenship
- Yes to labor rights and living wages for all workers

On May 1st, we showed the world that our force, our strength
and our voice cannot be silenced from this moment on! This is the birth of a
new civil rights movement for the 21st century, and we will fight for our
demands until we prevail.
United We'll Win! Together We'll Achieve Our Dreams!
