Tuesday, 6:00pm – 8:00pm, No Ban No Wall: Confronting the Militarization of Our Borders
221 Kroeber Hall, Gifford Room
Free / Open to public
A panel discussion entitled No Ban, No Wall: Confronting the Militarization of Our Borders and Communities
The Trump presidency has increased attacks on immigrant and marginalized communities through targeting sanctuary cities, instituting the Muslim ban, and revoking temporary protected status for thousands. But, these actions are based on a long-standing foundation of xenophobia and criminalization. Such repression manifests not only at borders, but also in our backyards in the form of militarized policing, state surveillance, and collusion between local and federal law enforcement.
Join us for a panel discussion to analyze these intersections with some of the individuals working to defend the health and rights of immigrant communities.
