Outreach - Retired Men’s Association

Today Executive Director, Cathleen Caron, spoke to the Retired Men’s Association in Greenwich, CT.  Founded in 1954, RMA’s purpose is to provide a venue for the friendly association of men who have an interest in Volunteerism, Fellowship and Service.  RMA is non-partisan, non-sectarian and not-for-profit association that honors our country and supports efforts to achieve good government.  Cathleen’s father, John Caron, an active member in the group invited her to speak on her work and the current state of immigration reform.  The talk entitled, “Global Workers Require Global Justice” drew the second largest crowd for the RMA ever, 203 people. 
 
Cathleen’s talk, available on video below, covered why she founded Global Workers, how Global Workers unique model is effective, sustainable, and impactful to ensure portable justice rights for migrant workers, and the current state of temporary foreign worker visas and immigration reform.  RMA members represented a diverse array of political views resulting in a lively question and answer period.  Questions ranged on her opinion of how current Latin American migrants are different from other generations of migrants to what were the aspects of immigration reform that were for the benefit of transnational migrant workers.  It was a unique opportunity to reflect, engage, and challenge the audience to gain a deeper understanding of the vulnerabilities and exploitation that our migration system has created.
