BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – New America Media, with support from the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice, is hosting the first-ever convening of Alabama’s ethnic media to discuss how to build stronger cross-racial communications in the wake of immigration law HB 56. The meeting, to take place today, Nov. 1 at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, represents the first time the state’s ethnic media have come together across all communities, including news outlets serving Alabama’s Hispanic, African American, Asian American, Arab American, Jewish and Native American residents. Leaders of the state’s ethnic media will strategize with representatives of immigrant rights, civil rights and women’s rights organizations on how to work together to document the effects of the immigration law and to protect the civil rights of all Alabamans.
