Sanctuary & Solidarity: Resisting the U.S. War on Refugees and Migrants

Aug 28 @ 12:00 pm-1:30 pm

Join us on Friday, August 28, 2020 at 12:00pm PST for Sanctuary and Solidarity: Resisting the U.S. War on Refugees and Migrants presented by the UCLA Luskin Institute on Inequality and Democracy.

This convening brings together critical legal scholars, immigration attorneys, Indigenous leaders, and anti-deportation activists to offer analysis of the crisis imposed on refugees at the U.S. Mexico border and human rights violations at ICE detention facilities. Centering Indigenous and migrant-led mobilizations against U.S. border imperialism on stolen land, it foregrounds pro bono assistance, accompaniment, shelter provision, and detention resistance in solidarity with asylum seekers as sanctuary practices that prefigure decolonial and abolitionist possibilities.
