UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED FOR NOW, AND WILL BE RE-SCHEDULED VERY SHORTLY.
Jose is a local activist that was crucial to the immigrant right marches of 2007 and 2008, the work against deportations, and the continuing fight for justice in the immigrant community, especially fighting the polimigra in Cook and surrounding counties. Rigo has been central to the radicalization and organization of young immigrant students here in Chicago and as a participant in the DREAM movement nationally. His own case against deportation was an important victory not only locally but nationally against the criminalization of immigrants. Both will tell of their experiences and the immigrant rights movement and lead a discussion on immigrants and the 99%.
