Updated: 4 Southern California Dialogue Events Nov. 8-10

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 Southern California facilitated by Jane Guskin, co-author (with David Wilson) of the newly released Monthly Review Press book "The Politics of Immigration: Questions and Answers." We'll work together to develop effective responses using hard facts, rational reasoning and personal experiences.
