Civic Engagement Series: Atlas: DIY on empowering immigrant youth
Greenlight’s Civic Engagement Series hosts nonprofit groups working in social justice, community organizing, and the arts, with the goal of providing tools for community involvement and support to those doing necessary work in our culture. 20% of all book sales on the entire day of the event will be donated to the featured organization, and an option for direct donation will be available at the event.
For April, Greenlight will host a discussion presented by Atlas: DIY about their work with young immigrants and the fight for immigrant justice. Atlas DIY is a cooperative center in Brooklyn that provides legal services, education, and leadership development programs to immigrant youth ages 14-24, regardless of their immigration status. Staff and young leaders from Atlas will discuss the work they are doing to protect, educate, and empower our immigrant communities. The group will then open up a discussion with the audience about some of the challenges we are facing right now and different ways that people can take action as accomplices and allies. Join us!
