    CV S8 Ep 16 Moving Toward an Immigrant Resource Center

    CV S8 Ep 16 Moving Toward an Immigrant Resource Center

    For many years, C2C has been advocating for a city funded Immigrant Resource Center.  On Monday, May 9th, representatives from the Immigration Advisory Board presented to the city council Committee of the Whole for the first time on the need for an immigrant resource center in our community . Following that presentation, the council voted 6-0 to move the Immigrant Resource Center forward.  In this episode, members of the sub-committee to establish an Immigrant Resource Center talk about the process of getting to this point, and the work that remains to be done.

    CV S8 Ep 11: Who Crafts the Narrative?

    CV S8 Ep 11: Who Crafts the Narrative?

    While C2C and FUJ were supporting workers on the strike line in Skagit Valley in late March, the Ag Industry wasted no time weaving new tales about the nefarious reasons for unions and farmworker advocacy. In this episode, Brenda Bentley, Rosalinda Guillen, and Liz Darrow talk about the reasons behind carefully crafted anti-worker propaganda and also offer a sneak peak into their own reasons for organizing (spoiler alert: it's not about money).
