The City of Tucson’s Immigrant Welcoming Task Force, in conjunction

with la Coalición de Derechos Humanos and the Tucson Immigrant

Workers’ Project, is hosting a Community Forum on Immigrant Women

Workers on Monday, Sept. 15, at 6 p.m., in the Sam Lena Library, 1607 S.

6th Avenue. 

The forum will include a presentation of “Out of the Shadows:

Shedding Light on the Working Conditions of Immigrant Women in
Tucson,” a report by the Bacon Immigration Law and Policy Program
and the Southwest Institute for Research on Women. In addition, a panel
of women workers, community advocates, and other stakeholders will be
present to discuss current working conditions and policy solutions. 

"The work of the task force will help us as a community to strengthen
our efforts on behalf of all of our residents,” said Ward 3 Council
Member Karin Uhlich. “The report will be of interest to many as we
move ahead."
