An immigrant advocacy group that organized over the summer is gathering steam, organizing an ESL class and planning two educational seminars for the new year. .
The first seminar to be offered by the Brazilian Civil Rights Coalition next month aims to educate the Brazilian community about rules of the road. Coalition member Nilton Lisboa said he hears complaints about immigrant drivers, so the group contacted the Registry of Motor Vehicles to come out and give a talk.
The next seminar will focus on American politics, said Lisboa, so immigrants will know how they can get involved even if they canít vote.
The coalition is also seeking more volunteers. Anyone interested in the new group's offerings is urged to call 508-667-1439.
