Abriendo Brecha 2017 is a call to action. In light of the new presidential administration’s attack on foreign-born members of the Austin community, this year’s conference will focus on urgent local matters: ICE raids, Senate Bill 4, executive orders banning Muslims and refugees, and the fight to for sanctuary. The goal of AB2017 is to create a space for local activists and scholars to share knowledge on what’s happening, what more we should expect, and what opportunities exist for engaging in resistance and solidarity.
