Immigration Dialogues in California

Have you heard an anti-immigrant argument that you feel is wrong, but need the facts to contest? (For example: "Immigrants are a drain on social services.") Do you have your own fear or concern about the issue? (For example: "Are the lowest-paid US-born workers really hurt by immigration?")

Bring your concerns to one of these upcoming dialogues in California facilitated by Jane Guskin or David Wilson, co-authors of the newly released Monthly Review Press book The Politics of Immigration: Questions and Answers. We'll work together to develop effective responses using facts, rational reasoning and personal experiences.

All events are free and open to the public. Books will be available for sale.
