The 2011 Immigration Assembly was a collaborative effort by more than 18 community organizations to help inform, support and empower the immigrant community to make local policy change in Orange County. More than 150 community members attended the November 19th event at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Santa Ana. The information sessions covered a wide range of topics including the changing Latino demographics in O.C., parent involvement in education, know your rights, Santa Ana’s towing policy and safe zones in High Schools. One attendee commented on the event, “I learned more so much at the Immigration Assembly. I was surprised by the wealth of information here.” The coalition members will continue to meet and hope to organize another Immigration Assembly in late 2012.
