Black American and Asian American solidarity will be the topic of a virtual chat on Thursday, June 11, 1 to 1:30 p.m. EST (noon to 12:30 p.m. CST). The National Korean American Service and Education Consortium (NAKASEC) will host the virtual chat with UndocuBlack Network on to discuss their joint organizing during the restrictions imposed by COVID-19. UndocuBlack Network is the first advocacy group specifically for undocumented blacks in the U.S.
The two organizations are collaborating on various fronts, including advocating for the DREAM Act, which, when voted into law, will provide a path to citizenship for first generation immigrants whose parents were undocumented, and for other undocumented U.S. residents who were born in other countries and brought up in the U.S.
The virtual live event, entitled Race and Solidarity – An UndocuBlack X NAKASEC Conversation is available on Facebook at the link.
