In the wake of President Trump’s immigration ban, stepped-up ICE raids and deportation actions, and curbing of refugee resettlement programs, the tech community has been electrified. We’ve seen protests, both spontaneous and planned, erupt in civic spaces and workplaces. The fight for immigration reform and for broadening refugee assistance predates the Trump administration, but this year’s executive actions and policy proposals have brought fresh urgency to this struggle.
Join us for a evening of conversation between leaders on immigration reform from the social movements, faith community, government and social services, as well as tech leaders who are standing up in the resistance. We will pose a question: is it time for a Sanctuary Tech Companies movement?
The conversation will take place at Google’s San Francisco office, will be moderated by Fusion’s Editor-at-Large Alexis Madrigal, and will include:
- Reverend Michael Ray-Mathews, Director of Clergy Organizing, PICO National Network
- Paul Chavez, Executive Director, Centro Legal de la Raza
- Lateefah Simon, President, Akonadi Foundation and BART director District 7
- Tom Chavez, founder and CEO of Krux which successfully sold to Salesforce
- Avi Rose, Executive Director, Jewish Family and Community Services East Bay
Join us, and feel free to share with friends!
