The Border Action Network is hosting human rights schools throughout the region to "ensure the voices of immigrants and border residents are heard from our backyards to Washington, D.C." This is important work and I will gladly support them in any way.

I'm interested in hearing how the speaker will outline ideas to help foster intrastate advocacy work, it's time for our regional voices to be given a louder microphone.
