    Are you an immigrant or know someone who is? Attend the "Know Your Rights" Workshop
    With the election of Donald Trump as our next president, our neighbors who are immigrants are understandably very concerned about their future in our nation. It is imperative that they, and everyone who is concerned about them, are fully aware of their constitutional rights and what to do if they are confronted by government authorities.

  • This is another good posting and it is clearly written. The posting says "immigrants" and those who "know someone who is". Chicago is a Sanctuary City, offers DACA services and supports its immigrants. This is a good and worthwhile workshop in Rogers Park, a welcoming community.

    Thank goodness Chicago is a sanctuary city, and neither the Feds, Trump or angry spammers can do anything about that, thanks to a Supreme Court ruling written by Justice Scalia. We will continue to be a welcoming city for ALL of our immigrants.

    The posts on here about illegal immigration have the effect of intimidating LEGAL immigrants, making them feel unwelcomed and forced to defend their legitimacy. The anti-immigrant expressions of some Trump voters inevitably end up making anyone who "looks" like an "illegal" a target of harassment and violence. These posts contribute to that.

    Unauthorized immigrants include Dreamers, and if this event gives them some help, that should be considered a good thing from every perspective.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the inside.

  • it sounds like a great idea. i would just worry that the financials might not be sound. i sorta feel that way about the arts in general. my own experience is that money is scarce, hard to make, and sadly necessary. more necessary than most people in the arts can appreciate, at least until it is their money.

    'LGBT History' Made As New Howard Brown Clinic Opens In Rogers Park
