November 5: Social Justice Tuesday- When Labor Rights Mean Immigrant Rights: Union, Immigrant Works, and Immigration Reform

SJTlogo12:30-1:20pm, Room 133

Labor rights and immigration rights are increasingly intertwined.  Join us to hear Dan Hutzenbiler and Professor Angélica Cházaro discuss the growth of alliances and strategies for representation and reform that bring these actors and their legal issues together and the resulting benefits and compromises.

Dan Hutzenbiler, a partner at Robblee, Detwiler, & Black, is a union-side labor law attorney who advises unions and represents building and construction workers.  He will speak to the ways in which immigration law and rights come up in a legal practice dedicated to protecting unions and workers.  Professor Angélica Cházaro is a former immigration attorney at the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and now a Visiting Assistant Professor at UW Law teaching Poverty Law.  She will discuss the growing coalescence of unions, worker organizing, and immigration reform movements in national immigration reform and in the local Sakuma Berry Farms strike of immigrant farmworkers in Washington.

If you would like lunch please RSVP via Symplicity or gatespsl@uw.edu  RSVP by 12:00 pm Monday, November 4, 2013.

November 7: Seattle Community Law Center Comedy Friendraiser

SCLC Comedy fundraiser

7:30pm at the Comedy Underground

Bill Cosby said “you can turn painful situations around through laughter.  If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it.”  SCLC uses the tools of legal advocacy to help people with disabilities facing the risks and realities of homelessness overcome barriers to economic and medical stability. For the third year, we will be merging Cosby’s approach with ours in one great event.  Come celebrate with us, and listen to Joe Vespasiani and Drew Barth at the Comedy Underground, Thursday November 7th at 7:30pm.
