11:30-1:30: Teach-In on the National Day Without Immigrants, with leaders from the national immigrant movement, Cosecha
1:45-3:45 (?): Action-Taking in downtown Northampton and in support of undocumented workers in our town

On May 1st, students, faculty and staff of Smith College as well as immigrants and allies in Northampton will join in a national strike, “A Day without Immigrants”. We will not go to school, we will not go to work, and we will not buy anything. This will be the biggest immigrant-led strike in 10 years.

In preparation for this strike, on April 22nd at Smith College, there will be the amazing opportunity to learn directly from the organizers and leaders of this immigrant-led movement.

Cosecha, is a nonviolent movement fighting for permanent protection, dignity and respect for immigrants in the U.S. including the 11 million undocumented immigrants. Through boycotts and strikes, Cosecha is building the resistance that will dramatically shift the public opinion around immigration in this country. We are going to make it clear that this country cannot function without immigrants. This is only the beginning of our fight toward permanent protection, dignity and respect.

Let's build momentum for the May 1st strike! Following the training we will have an ACTION in the streets. Don’t worry if you cannot come to both events on the 22nd, come to what you can. We want to see you there!

As we saw during the campus shutdowns in November and the sanctuary campus movement, students have a critical role to play in making this movement a success. Come learn more about your integral role in this nonviolent movement.

11:30-1:30: Taller sobre el Día Nacional Sin Inmigrantes, con líderes del movimiento inmigrante nacional, Cosecha
1:45-3:45 (?): Ación en el centro de Northampton apoyando trabajadores indocumentados en nuestro pueblo

El primero de Mayo se juntaran estudiantes, facultad y empleados de Smith College y más inmigrantes y aliados de northampton en la huelga nacional, “Un Dia sin Inmigrantes”. No vamos a la escuela, no vamos al trabajo, y no vamos a comprar. Esta será la huelga más grande dirigida por inmigrantes en 10 años.

En preparación para la huelga, vamos a tener una oportunidad increíble este 22 de Abril para aprender directamente de los organizadores y líderes de este movimiento dirigido por inmigrantes. Cosecha es un movimiento sin violence luchando por la protección permanente, dignidad, y respeto por los inmigrantes en los EEUU, incluyendo los 11 millones de inmigrantes indocumentados.

A través de boicots y huelgas, Cosecha está construyendo la resistencia que va a cambiar dramáticamente la opinión pública sobre inmigración en el país. Vamos a hacer claro que este país no puede funcionar sin inmigrantes. Esto es solo el principio de la lucha por protección permanente, dignidad, y respeto.

¡Construyamos impulso para la huelga el 1 de Mayo! Después del entrenamiento, vamos a tener un ACCIÓN en las calles. No te preocupes si no puedes asistir a los dos eventos este día, ven a lo que puedes. ¡Queremos verte alli!

Como vimos durante la cerrada de “campuses” en Noviembre y el movimiento de Santuario, estudiantes han tomado un rol crucial en la creación de un movimiento exitoso. Ven a aprender sobre tu rol integral en este movimiento sin violencia.
