Allison Masangkay – Bold Summer 2016

Current 21 Progress Creative Project Associate and UW-Seattle Student

In collaboration with several media outlets across Seattle & the International District, Losa (another Bold Summer 2016 Intern) and I created “ImaginAction”—a series of workshops that connected lessons from WWII Japanese-American “internment” camps to anti-Muslim and refugee sentiment to encourage solidarity among diverse young people in King County. While I’d facilitated workshops before, never had I gone into such deep research to create relevant social justice-based curriculum, pitch our workshop to numerous community organizations, and present our workshop to facilitate learning experiences—both for myself and the youth workshop participants—that translated into action plans for positive community change. While some steps of the process genuinely left me exhausted and lost, some of biggest moment of growth came from the guidance of my supervisor and shared tools among the rest of the Bold Summer Interns working alongside me.

Michel Baños – Bold Summer 2016

Current 21 Progress Program Assistant and UW-Seattle Student

My time and energy as a Bold Intern was devoted to our Build Your Dream (BYD) Program. BYD is a program that specifically works with our undocumented communities in a variety of ways through workshops, healing activities, art, outreach, and dialogue. On the day to day, I would likely be meeting with families one on one, facilitating a workshop, attending an outreach event, answering phone calls, or working on new curriculum. Admittedly, the job was hard at times, but I reflect back at them now as moments of growth. It was those moments of confusion and challenge, that gave way for a learning opportunity, one that I could ask my mentors for support in. In my time at 21 Progress, I have learned a lot, but most importantly I have learned about how I want to show up for my communities in this work.

Seattle2Selma, an experiential leadership pilgrimage

By Dylan Moore

“A pilgrimage is going to a place of no-return. YOU never come back.” – Bernard Lafayette

Earlier this summer, 21 Progress kicked off a new program intended to facilitate the development of new leaders and the formation of new connections and coalitions.

20 students from across King County came together with our team of organizers and began meeting as part of the Seattle2Selma program. Seattle2Selma is an immersive “civil rights pilgrimage.” Using the people, places and events of the Black Freedom Struggle of the 1950’s and 1960’s in the American South as a backdrop, our group began exploring the tactics of various civil rights campaigns and their connections to current issues. Additionally, we have explored our own identities and intersectionality.

Our journey has brought together young leaders who otherwise might never interact, young students of color and allies deeply invested in learning about structural oppression, identity, and creating an intentional community. Our group consists of students from Kent, Renton, Bellevue, Everett, and Seattle, with many races, immigration statuses, and backgrounds represented; this group dynamic \ helps deepen our communication skills across difference.

Together, we have explored the history of the struggle for black liberation through readings, videos, and discussion, and now it’s time to immerse ourselves in it.

While traveling by bus together through Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas, we will have the opportunity to meet various leaders and footsoldiers whose work spans decades, including:

  • Dr. Bernard Lafayette: Freedom Rider and organizer of the first SNCC voting rights in Selma, which would eventually culminate in the Selma marches and passage of the Voting Rights Act
  • Joanne Bland: co-founder and former director of the National Voting Rights Museum. At age 11, she marched on Bloody Sunday and hasn’t stopped marching or working for human rights since
  • Dr. Rip Patton: Freedom Rider and participant in the Nashville student movement
  • Leroy Clemons, a Mississippi native and community leader in the Philadelphia Coalition, a multi-racial group that pushed for justice 41 years after the Freedom Summer murders of Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, and Michael Schwermer
  • Johnny B. Thomas, mayor of Glendora, MS, and founder of the Emmett Till Historic Intrepid Center.

We will meet many present day leaders, including student leaders at Fisk University, the legal team at the Equal Justice Initiative, the nonprofit dedicated to indigent defense founded by Bryan Stephenson, lawyer and author of Just Mercy, (if you haven’t seen his TED Talk: We need to talk about an injustice, watch it now!), as well as Alejandro Guizar, an organizer from the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice (a group that formed in response to Alabama’s anti-immigrant law: HB-56), giving us the chance to explore the parallels and intersections between different movements for human rights.

During our time on the road, we will build upon the curriculum covered in our group meetings, diving deeper into identity and intersectionality. Through personal drive, intentionality, analysis, and reflection, students return home with:

  • Deepened leadership skills and experience
  • A new vision for future self and community, while honoring the past
  • A renewed belief in the power of individual as well as collective action
  • A cultivated sense of social responsibility and commitment to civic engagement through action
  • An expanded community of beloved support and connections to civil rights leaders, past and present.

We will post updates of our progress over the next week on the Seattle2Selma website. Please follow our journey and consider giving to support this work.

NEW! Summer Leadership Program: Seattle2Selma, Bridging the Movements of the Past to the Leaders of Today

21 Progress is proud to announce the launch of a their new summer leadership program:

Seattle2Selma, Bridging the Movements of the Past to the Leaders of Today

In February of 2016, 21 Progress’ Programs Director, Marissa Vichayapai, boarded a bus with 53 community members to start a 9 day pilgrimage organized by the Project Pilgrimage. Completely inspired by the work, mission, and cultivation of progressive leaders, 21 Progress partnered with Project Pilgrimage to bring the transformational experience to even more people in Washington State. Through the mentorship and support of Project Pilgrimage and 21 Progress’ exceptional commitment and service in youth leadership development, Settle2Selma was created.

Seattle2Selma is a youth centered Civil Rights Pilgrimage offering an intensive and experiential leadership development opportunity for high school and college students with an interest in making positive changes.

Starting with a series of 6-preparatory meetings, students responsibly ready themselves for the experience. Then, journeying across the deep American South over the course of 6 days, students are immersed into the historic civil rights movement through powerful human connections, visiting influential places, and engaging in diverse experiences.

Much like movements of today and the past, students can expect to be both personally and mentally challenged, as and they are forced to critically examine social concepts, reflect on personal beliefs, and analyze how history has shaped contemporary issues and society today.

Through personal drive, intentionality, analysis, and reflection, students return home with:

  • Exceptional leadership skills and experience
  • Bold vision for future self and community, while honoring the past
  • Belief in power of the people and themselves
  • Cultivation of social responsibility and commitment to social justice through action
  • Expanded community of beloved support

Upon returning home, students have the option to engage in deeper leadership opportunities to build upon the work and make real local change.

Seattle2Selma is a program of 21 Progress in partnership with Bellevue And Cleveland High Schools. Major support–including funding and inspiration and leadership support–provided by Project Pilgrimage.

Applications for Summer 2016 are currently open. Apply here by April 12th, midnight. Click here to share the info flyer.

The Fight Isn’t Over. We’re Going To The Supreme Court.

On November 9, 2015, a federal appeals court in New Orleans ruled that President Obama’s expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) programs cannot be implemented. The 2-to-1 ruling upholds a February 16th injunction by a federal judge in Texas who blocked President Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

Expanded DACA and DAPA, or Deferred Action for Parental Accountability, are two proposed federal programs that was scheduled to launch in February 2015. However, an anti-immigrant judge from Texas who claims that DACA and DAPA are unconstitutional and a burden to their state filed a lawsuit, stopping the two programs.

Expanded DACA and DAPA would allow approximately 4.9 million eligible undocumented immigrants temporary protection from deportation along with other similar benefits as the DACA program such as a work permit, and social security number.

Click HERE for previous post about the injunction.

What does this mean?

  • The court decision has indefinitely delayed the expanded DACA program. Until a court overturns the existing decision, expanded DACA will not happen. The Obama Administration continues to look for ways to overturn the decision.
  • The courts decision DOES NOT affect the DACA program. If you have been granted
  • DACA, it is still in effect. If you need to renew DACA, you may still do so.

What now?

  • The 4.9 million eligible undocumented immigrants will have to wait longer. Until this ruling is reversed, the federal government isn’t allowed to do anything to implement either of the new programs.
  • It is highly likely the Obama Administration will appeal the 5th Circuit Court decision. If the case goes to the Supreme Court, it is likely that there will be no final decision until approximately June 2016.

What you can do:

  1. Get screened for DACA, DAPA or Expanded DACA. Call 206 578-1255 to receive a free screening over the phone. Translators available in all languages.
  2. Continue to save money. The application fee will cost $465 per person. Even if the DAPA program is not implemented it is likely that there will be other options or programs created for undocumented parents.
  3. Collect evidence. Continue to keep bills, and paperwork that prove your residents in the US.
  4. Volunteer or join the movement. It is critical that we band together and fight for our right to live respectfully in the US. Contact FAIR! by calling 206 578-1255 or email info@itshouldbefair.com to see how you can help.

抗争还没结束。 我们正准备迈向最高法院!

在2015年11月9 日,新奥尔良地方法院裁定,奥巴马总统就扩大儿童入境定居和父母问责制延迟计划将无法实施。

在2:1的结果下,联邦法官就奥巴马总统于2月16日提出的移民行政提议宣布禁令。

原定于本年二月推行的DACA&DAPA的扩展计划和父母问责制计划,现由于一名反移民法官的裁定而终止。

DACA&DAPA的扩展计划将允许大约490万非法移民人士得到临时保护,如:工作证,社会安全号码

Click HERE for previous post about the injunction.

这意味着:

  •  法院决定无限延迟 DACA的扩展计划。直到推翻这一裁定之前,这一计划都无法实施,奥巴马政府将寻求新的方式来推翻这判决。
  • 法院的这一裁定将不会影响 DACA计划,如您已被授予DACA, 它将仍然有效,如您需要更新它,也依然可以实行。那么现状是:
  • 490万符合条件的非法移民者将不得不延长他们的等待,直到这一裁决被推翻之前,联邦政府不允许实施任何新项目。
  • 奥巴马政府极有可能将对这一裁决提出上诉,如果案件转移到最高法院,直到2016年6月前都不可能得到最终裁决。

那么你现在能做的是:

  • 通过拨打(206)578-1255 免费查询电话 ,争取获得DACA, DAPA的筛选资格 (提供多种语言翻译版本)。
  • 继续存款。 因为申请费为$465/人,即使DACA计划未能实行,但很有可能为无证父母推行其他方案。
  • 收集证据。继续保留票据,或文件从而证明您在美国居住。
  • 做志愿者或参加活动。我们并肩一起为我们在美国的权利而奋斗,这是很关键的
  • 您可以通过拨打206 578-1255 或发邮件到info@itshouldbefair.com 来联系我们

抗爭還沒結束。我們正準備邁向最高法院!

在2015年11月9日,新奧爾良地方法院裁定,奧巴馬總統就擴大兒童入境定居和父母問責制延遲計劃將無法實施。

在2:1的結果下, 聯邦法官就奧巴馬總統於2月16日提出的移民行政提議宣布禁令。

原定於本年二月推行的DACA&DAPA的擴展計劃和父母問責制計劃, 現由一名反移民法官的裁定而終止。

DACA&DAPA的擴展計劃將允許大約490萬非法移民人士得到臨時保護,如:工作證,社會安全號

Click HERE for previous post about the injunction.

這意味著:

  • 法院決定無限延遲 DACA的擴展計劃。 直到推翻這一裁定之前,這一計劃都無法實施,奧巴馬政府將尋求新的方式來推翻這判決。
  • 法院的這一裁定將不會影響DACA計劃, 如您已被授與DACA, 它依然有效,如您需要更新它,也依然可以實行。

那麼現狀是:

  • 490萬符合條件的非法移民者將不得不延長他們的等待,直到這一裁決被推翻之前,聯邦政府不允許實施任何新項目。
  • 奧巴馬政府極有可能將對這一裁決提出上訴,如果案件轉移到最高法院,那麼直到2016年6月之前都不可能得到最終裁決。

那麼你現在能做的是:

아직 끝나지 않았습니다. 대법원으로 갑니다

2015년 11월 9일, 뉴올리언즈에 위치한 연방항소법원이 오바마 대통령의 확장형 DACA 프로그램과 DAPA프로그램의 이행불가 발표를 했습니다. 이 2대1 판결은 15년 2월 16일 텍사스 연방판사가 오바마 대통령 이민법에 관한 행정명령을 금지시킨 판결을 지지했습니다.

확장형 DACA와 DAPA는 연방 프로그램으로서 2015년 2월에 시작될 계획이였습니다. 하지만 텍사스  반(反)이민 판사가 위헌성과 주에 부가되는 부담의 이유로 신청한 소송이 프로그램을 정지시켰습니다.

DAPA와 확장형 DACA는 4백90만명의 (프로그램 적격의) 서류미비 이민자의 일시적 강제추방 보호 및 취업허가증, 사회보장번호의 이익을 제공합니다.

프로그램에 관련한 포스트를 보려면 여기를 클릭하세요.

이 판결이 의미하는것은?

  • 법원의 판결은 확장형 DACA 프로그램의 무기한 정지를 의미합니다. 현 판결이 바뀌어 질 때까지 확장형 DACA 프로그램은 시행되지 않을것입니다. 오바마 정부는 판결을 바꿀 방법을 모색하고 있습니다.
  • 법원의 판결은 허가된 현(現)DACA 프로그램에 영향을 미치지 않습니다.
  • 현 DACA 프로그램의 기한갱신은 할 수 있습니다.

앞으로 일어날 일은?

  • 위의 판결이 바뀔때까지 연방정부는 새로운 이민 프로그램을 집행할 수 없습니다. 4백90만명의 서류미비 이민자는 더 기다려야 합니다.
  • 오바마 정부가 제 5 연방항소법원의 판결에 항소할 가능성은 매우 낮습니다. 연방 대법원의 판결은 2016년 6월에 날 예정입니다.

우리가 할 수 있는 것:

  • DACA, DAPA 그리고 확장형 DACA 프로그램의 적격여부 확인을 하세요. 206-578-1255 에 전화하여 무료로 확인하세요. 번역 및 통역이 가능합니다.
  • 계속 저축하세요. 프로그램 싱청비는 1인당 $465입니다. DAPA 프로그램이 집행되지 않더라고 서류미비 부모들을 위한 프로그램이 만들어질 것으로 예상되기 때문입니다.
  • 자료를 계속 모으세요. 영수증, 청구서 및 미국 거주를 증명할 수 있는 문서를 수집하세요.
  • 이민 운동에 봉사 및 참여하세요. 함께 모여서 미국에 거주할 수 있는 권리를 위해 싸우세요. FAIR! 프로그램에 연락하세요. 206-578-1255 또는 info@itshouldbefair.com에 문의하세요.
