Dear Friend Please pass on attached flyer to your friends supportive of Suffolk Co. immigrants and place flyers in appropriate places, such as yr congregation's bulletin or newsletter or school bulletin board. This 1/2 day of no- cost workshops will help you speak more effectively about these issues when speaking to the press, in front of groups, or simply responding to misstatements of fact, erroneous suppositions, or emotional outbursts encouraged by demagogic political leaders and some media, conveying anger, resentment and too often bias against LI immigrants, documented and undocumented. Learn smarter ways, manners and methods of speaking about immigration issues and enjoy meeting kindred Suffolk neighbors who also seek to influence with rational discourse in this climate of hostility, hysteria, and aggressive scapegoating of immigrants of color. Meet and network with allies, neighbors who continue fighting for immigrant rights in face of often dispiriting and seemingly intractable opposition. Invite trustworthy friends on your lists. --mo The Long Island Immigrant Alliance Eastern LI Organizacion Latino Americana Stony Brook University Humanities Institute Civic Performance Cordially invite you to Communicating Positive Contributions of Immigrants to Long Island, and Working Toward Immigration Solutions that Work for Everyone Nationally recognized media consultants Laguens Hamburger Kully Klose Strategies & Media will lead the workshop.
