The Challenge of Reframing Immigrant Issues in the Media:
Training & Presentation of Best Practices & Messaging Toolkit
September 14th, 2009
1145 Wilshire Blvd, 2nd Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90017
9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Come join us for an exciting communications training event sponsored by the California Immigrant Policy Center, the Asian Pacific American Legal Center and the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles on reframing immigrant issues, and help California lead the way in creating a more just and civil environment for our immigrant community!
In response to an overwhelming collective interest in beginning to work together to change the tide of our state’s immigration conversation, CIPC has developed a comprehensive training and toolkit of messages for advocates, allies and service providers working on immigrant issues.
Attendees will leave the day of communications training with the skills and tools needed to talk about issues with their communities and the media such as:
· Immigrant access to health care and public benefits
· Immigrants and the economic crisis facing California and the nation
· Immigrant contributions as taxpayers and workers
· Immigrant integration into California’s political, social and cultural life
As participants, you will also be part of a larger network of organizations – both regionally and statewide – dedicated to working collaboratively to counter anti-immigrant sentiment with positive and factual messages.
Registration is limited. Please return by September 9th.
