Tri-Cities Immigrant Coalition Is Looking for Volunteers

Please consider attending accompaniment training so you can support immigrants who are required to go to court. You will learn how to offer emotional support and how to respond if ICE agents try to make an arrest. You will learn how to determine when ICE is making a legal arrest and when they are attempting to trample on immigrants’ rights to arrest them. You will learn about the responsibilities of accompaniment, but you will also learn that the responsibilities are divided among several people so that everyone’s role is clearly defined with simple tasks. If you have empathy (and all of you do) and a cell phone (and all of you do), you can do this, and the people TCIC has accompanied are always so grateful for the help! You don’t even need to speak Spanish to accompany immigrants to court. Also to note is that ICE has not been present at any of the accompaniments TCIC members have helped with to date. This is not to suggest that there’s no risk, but at this time, ICE is active in other parts of the state.

Training details are:
Date: This Friday, November 22
Time: 12 noon
Place: Shalom Library (505 McMurray St, Richland)
Questions: Donna (509-947-4419)

10. January 2020 · Comments Off on Climate Change & National Security · Categories: Recent Events

The national security community expects our changing climate to present a large number of challenges. The US Navy will have to grapple with newly opened Arctic Sea lanes and rising sea level impacts on its bases, and we expect sea level rise and changes in water and food availability to stimulate large population movements during this century. The former commander of the United States Pacific Command said that climate change was his largest security concern.

Bob Hallahan, retired Navy Commander, will be speaking on these topics and the military response.

Details:

Wednesday, October 30th

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Details:

Thursday, October 17th, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Red Lion Hotel & Conference Center Pasco, 2525 N. 20th Ave, Pasco, WA

Over the past five years, Latinx communities in Pasco and Yakima successfully fought election systems that prevented them from having an equal and meaningful opportunity to elect representatives of their choice to City Council. And just last year, the ACLU and allies celebrated the passage of the Washington Voting Rights Act, which helps to ensure that every voter has an equal opportunity to elect the candidate of their choice and empowers local governments to fix the widespread problem of voter exclusion in local elections.

We have seen great strides in voting rights, but many Washington residents still face barriers when participating in one of the cornerstones of our democracy.

Join Staff Attorney Breanne Schuster and community leaders to discuss how far we have come, the challenges ahead, and ongoing work to defend the right to vote. Join us and learn how you can get involved.
