Immigration Enforcement, Law Enforcement, and Educational Justice
Join us Friday, May 20th for our monthly member meeting. This month’s Political Education will be facilitated by members of NYCoRE’s Teach Dream Working Group.
In April, we discussed the intersections of the prison abolition movement and educational justice. In this month’s meeting, Teach Dream (a working group of NYCoRE) will continue this conversation by exploring the connections between immigration enforcement and law enforcement. The United States has a long history of using policing and borders to perpetuate racism and capitalism. We will read, discuss, and draw ways that we as educators in particular can resist and support resistance in order to imagine and bring forth a world without borders and without police.
Check out these two actions to support undocumented and immigrant youth and families:
- A petition to Chancellor Farina and Mayor de Blasio to make NYC a true “sanctuary city.”
- A resolution urging more explicit and tangible support through the United Federation of Teachers’ Delegate Assembly this Wednesday.
To learn more about these actions, join us on May 20th!
Note: Credit for much of the political analysis in this workshop goes to the Black Lives Matter movement, the ICEfreeNYC coalition, Families for Freedom and the New York State Youth Leadership Council.
