[Asheville, NC] Asheville-area undocumented youth and local organizations including Nuestro Centro, Asheville-Buncombe Community Relations Council, and the Migrant Education Program of Buncombe County Public Schools have come together in the interest of sharing accurate information about President’s Obama’s immigration policy shift concerning Deferred Action. We invite all the community to attend this information session on Tuesday, July 31st 2012, from 6pm-8pm at Vance Elementary School auditorium. Interpretation, childcare, and snacks will be provided at the event.
This informational meeting will discuss what deferred action is, what documents people should get in order, and how to families can be protected from scams and fraudulent information that may start to circulate in the community prior to the official release of the application process.
According to Bruno Hinojosa, one of the event organizers “It’s important for the immigrant community to be informed about this policy change as soon as possible. A well informed community is stronger and more empowered and they can help to spread the word to their family, friends, and neighbors.”
This event is open to the public and for more information about the event please contact Sarah Nuñez at 828-252-4713.
