Dear NNIRR Members and Friends,
NNIRR is going to be in Detroit later this month for the US Social Forum (USSF) and we are putting out a general call to all members, friends and allies to join us!
Some 10,000 progressive activists and advocates are expected to attend the Social Forum, which will provide a unique opportunity to connect with friends and allies from across the country. Through the hundreds of workshops and other activities, participants will be introduced to the diverse issues and concerns that are part of our broad movement for social and economic justice, or can take part in more in-depth analysis and discussions. For more information about the US Social Forum go to USSF 2010.
We know that times are really tough for grassroots groups and that a trip to Detroit would be challenging, but we want to urge folks to participate with NNIRR. Together with members and partners, we are organizing several workshops and activities to strengthen our political agenda and relationships.
We are holding a membership meeting on June 21 & June 22 in Detroit, just before the USSF formally opens.
The meeting will be an opportunity to build a common analysis of the past year and expectations for the near future and strategize on campaigns and organizing efforts from the grassroots that will build the movement to defend and expand rights and justice for immigrants and refugees, confront events such as with Arizona and ensure we are heard in D.C. as legislators make deals that threaten the integrity of our communities.
You can join us at our membership meeting!
If you are already a member and want to come, let us know ASAP. Contact: email@example.com.
If you are not yet a member but are interested in becoming one, go to NNIRR Membership to sign up and join us for our membership meeting - contact firstname.lastname@example.org for meeting details.
