Last month ICE raided a New Bedford garment factory and seized 350 
immigrant workers and destroyed hard working families. Labor needs to 
stand up for the rights of all workers as we face a changing workforce 
in Massachusetts. We need to work within our unions to educate our 
members on the immigration issue and to build partnerships with 
immigrant communities.
Come hear local labor leaders along with immigrant workers fighting for 
their rights on the job.  We will ways to build for the future and 
prevent more New Bedfords from happening in our state.
