The Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights hosts an annual “Asamblea” where all the comites populares in Georgia come together to learn about new deportation defense strategies to continue fighting for immigrant rights. The main purpose behind the Asamblea is to make sure that all the leaders at the state level are equally trained, to share achievements, new advances, and share new ways on how to overcome obstacles within their own communities.
In this annual gathering, we shared experiences in the struggle for immigrant rights and also discussed new alternative options on how to face different obstacles in our communities for the experience of other members. In addition, we use this time to integrate all the community leaders with GLAHR’s new plan of action for the upcoming months and year. The first “Asamblea” took place in 2011 and we have continued to host our annual ‘Asamblea” ever since.
