Midwest Social Forum

Dear friend,

We would like to invite you to participate in an important event concerning the immigrant rights struggle, which is fast becoming the civil rights movement of our time. This year, the Midwest Social Forum will include an Immigrant Rights Caucus titled “Challenges and Opportunities for the Immigrant Rights Movement: A State and Regional Dialogue.” The Caucus, which will take place on the afternoon of Thursday, July 6-9 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Student Union, is the first of a large number of events focusing on the immigrant rights struggle at the Forum. For more information about these events, and the Forum more generally (program, registration, logistics, etc.), please visit

  • Share best practices for      state-level organizing; and
  • Build or strengthen immigrant      right networks in the



A tentative agenda and list of host organizations are provided below, as well as a list of other immigrant rights events taking place at the Forum.
