Our next community meeting will gather Boyle Heights residents to explore newly revived fears over threats of deportations of undocumented immigrants.

Members of the community will be invited to share their stories, concerns and fears over President Trump’s new and expanded deportation policies. Attendees will also hear from Zola Cervantes, a Boyle Heights Beat youth reporter who writes in our latest issue about her own family’s ordeal after her father was deported to Mexico.

There will be resources for those who may need legal assistance or counseling, plus information about classes for those able to become citizens.

We will serve tacos, aguas frescas and other snacks to go along with the conversation.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 25, from 5 to 7:30 p.m., at the Boyle Heights Arts Conservatory, 2708 East César Chávez Avenue.

Please join us. You can reserve a spot at our Facebook event page.
