Immigrant & Refugee Rights Training Institutes (IRRTI)

NNIRR organizes national and regional IRRTI (Immigrant & Refugee Rights Training Institutes) for community organizers and leaders to develop their skills as popular education facilitators in the context of movement building. Contact Cathi, ctactaquin[at]nnirr[dot]org, if your community group/organization is interested in hosting an IRRTI in your region this summer.
