WBAI’s Building Bridges presents
A Beautiful Mosaic or A Tattered Tapestry: The Worldwide Struggle for Immigrant Worker’s Civil & Labor Rights
The battle for immigrant rights has emerged as the most significant civil and labor rights struggle in the U.S. since the 1960’s. So join radio WBAI’s Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report at the CUNY Graduate Center on May 9th where a distinguished panel will analyze the hotly debated immigration proposals pending in the federal legislature and the forces that drive them; the vicious backlash that has resulted in mass arrests; and the cultural forces that shape our attitudes. We’ll dig even deeper to reveal the interaction between economic globalization and transnationalization and examine the complex forces that shape, the contemporary immigrant experience.

Malin Falu, Host of “Dialogo de Costa a Costa”. Daily national show on HITN TV
Alba Ruiz, Daily News Columnist
Mayra Peters-Quintero, Immigrant Rights Clinic, NYU School of Law Hector Cordero-Guzman, author, “Migration, Transnationalization, and Race in a Changing New York”
