Thursday 9/28: Open the skies, flip the valley

Calling all political activists and humanitarians! Our program tomorrow night has it all – from activism to education to helping disaster victims too! Join us Thursday at 6:30pm in the Dining Room of the Chancellor Hotel. #StrongerTogether

It looks like the outlines of the travel-ban baseline are set, though news in this administration changes in internet time: Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad, North Korea, and Venezuela. Come for immigration news and views from Nima Rahimi, who has been with the Iranian American Bar Association throughout the journey of the Policy Formerly Known as the “Muslim Ban.”

Fran Schreiberg, of law firm Kazan McClain Satterley & Greenwood, will tell us how Working America is gearing up to flip seats in the Central Valley. As we saw last night, politics is always full of surprises. Working America is busy making those surprises go our way.

Working America is a national organization aiming to represent working Americans who don’t have union representation themselves. If you haven’t already, check out the Oakland Post’s story on their work in the Central Valley and the piece in The Nation highlighting their work in Columbus, Ohio.

And remember your donations for The Fellowship in Katy, TX. It’s a tragic time across the U.S. as natural disasters slash through Puerto Rico and the Atlantic coast. We stand by our commitment to The Fellowship. We’ll bundle and send checks to Katy after the meeting; if you’ve previously made an online donation at http://www.thefellowship.org/disaster-relief, bring your confirmation to the meeting. Donations in at least the amount of your dues get you 2018 membership on us.

If you haven’t already, RSVP on our Facebook event page.
