About This Recording
Community organizers are vital to ensuring that state and local officials prioritize community needs and create fair opportunities for all residents, including immigrants, to thrive. Whether you are working to ensure your public school system provides equal access to educational opportunities for immigrant children or looking to better understand how your local law enforcement resources are being used to assist federal immigration agents, your work is essential to ensuring government accountability and transparency.
This webinar offers suggestions for how you can strengthen your advocacy efforts by using your states’ open records laws to access information on state and local government practices impacting your communities. Experts on the open records process discuss the types of records that can be helpful to organizers and how you can obtain them, and offer strategies for using the records to strengthen immigration advocacy.
