On Monday, Aug. 5, Con­gressman Mark DeSaul­nier will hold a town hall in Richmond on immigration.

DeSaulnier plans to share what he witnessed during two visits to immigration detention facilities on the U.S. southern border.

The town hall will take place at St. Mark’s Catholic Church, 159 Harbour Way South, at 6:30 p.m.

Desaulnier also plans to share the work he is doing in Congress to protect im­migrant rights and ensure detainees are treated with dignity. The town hall will also feature a panel of ex­perts to discuss immigra­tion issues such as asylum law, about the battle over the citizenship question in the Census, and immigra­tion raids.

Legal resources and in­formation about immigrant rights will be available in English and Spanish, and a translator will also be on hand during the event.

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, emily.penrod@deweysquare.com. For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
