The Houston Rapid Response Network is a group of people on-call to show up for people and families impacted by current anti-immigration laws. The training will review actions to help counteract deportation and the splitting up of families in our state. The training also covers how documented allies can play both small and large roles in the network and how all of us together can show up in solidarity with the undocumented and migrant people in our community.
This event prepares you to meet with congressional district offices during their August recess. TX Impact will be coordinating legislative visits for both TX state and Congressional legislators after the training during the month of August. We’ll be focusing on immigration, climate and energy and health policy.
