ROSA NAVARRO & RICARDO VARELA TALK ABOUT IMMIGRANTS ORGANIZING, WHAT'S AT STAKE, AND OVERCOMING FEAR
SUCCESSFUL ORGANIZING FOR COLLECTIVE ACTION OFTEN REQUIRES OVERCOMING FEAR, BECAUSE POWER STRUCTURES TEND TO RETALIATE WHEN CHALLENGED.  IN WORKPLACE ORGANIZING, SOME OF US GET FIRED.  WHEN IMMIGRANTS WITHOUT PAPERS ORGANIZE, ACTIVISTS GET DETAINED OR DEPORTED, TOO.
YET  "UNDOCUMENTED AND UNAFRAID" HAS BECOME THE SLOGAN OF A MOVEMENT, AND IMMIGRANT WORKERS ARE AT THE FOREFRONT OF LABOR ORGANIZING.
ROSA NAVARRO OF THE MIGRANT COLLECTIVE AND RICARDO VARELA OF THE OREGON DREAM ACTIVISTS JOIN US TO TALK ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON NOW, HOW MUCH IS AT STAKE, AND TACTICS THAT WORK.
