TASK FORCE HOSTS FORUM ON IMMIGRANT WOMEN WORKERS

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."
