Berkeley Immgrant Rights Collective (BIRC)

We hope to serve as a hub for sharing and coordinating organizing and activism efforts across campus. We also have compiled (and continue to compile) a list of ways you can get involved in volunteer work with organizations in the Bay Area. Please add any opportunities you are aware of. Also, please share information on any events or actions taking place on campus or in the area. If you know anybody who would like to be added to the listserv, please tell them to contact Keith Welch

Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Institute (BIMI)

This is a closed list used to send academic information for immigration researchers. The focus is on events, talks and funding opportunities for members of the UC-Berkeley community. But we also welcome non-campus scholars to the list and circulate information on conferences, jobs and funding elsewhere in the US and the world. Over a third of list members are not UCB-affiliates.

If you have an academic event to share on the Berkeley campus, or want to circulate a call for papers, fellowship opportunity, etc., please email  Also use this address if colleagues want to be added to the list.
