Seattle CISPES is hosting, in collaboration with CASA Latina and the Washington Fair Trade Coalition, an Immigration and Trade Teach-In.

This distinctive event will examine the root causes of immigration from Latin America and the effects that U.S. trade and immigration policies have on families. Recent immigrants will share their own stories, while leaders of local organizations will speak out about current immigration and trade legislation. Additionally, CISPES activists will share from their recent experiences in El Salvador, where they visited the families of immigrants who have settled in Seattle.

Please join us for a night of education and personal stories, where you will be equipped with ideas for concrete action to take in solidarity with immigrants and the families in Latin America.  The event will be  recorded by KBCS, 91.3FM (see news article here:  One World Report on 6/21/07).
