Immigration issues have been all over the news and even in the U.S. Congress these past few weeks. What does this mean for the close to 10,000 undocumented immigrants living right here in New Haven? Dwight Hall invites the Yale community and the New Haven community at large to join us for an engaging and dynamic discussion on what life is like for New Haven's large immigrant population and on the current state of immigrant rights and services in this city. The event will feature a panel of experts and activists who have done extensive work on the issue at the local level, including Kica Matos of JUNTA for Progressive Action, New Haven Alderwoman Maria Reyes Rivera from Fair Haven, local immigrant activist John Lugo of of Unidad Latina en Acción, New Haven Deputy Chief of Staff Rob Smuts, and Yale American Studies Professor Alicia Schmidt-Camacho. Join us for this unique event that will bridge the town-gown divide and bring much-needed attention to immigration reform right here in New Haven! This is a Dwight Hall at Yale Community In-Reach Series event.
