Few subjects spark more passionate debate in 21st Century America than immigration policy. Even as President Donald Trump and his allies adhere to their divisive and destructive stances, millions upon millions of caring and thinking Americans are rising to the challenge and pushing back in favor of just, humane and economically beneficial policies.

One of the leading voices in promoting laws, policies, and attitudes that honor our proud history as a nation of immigrants is the Washington, DC-based American Immigration Council. Join us on Tuesday December 5, as we welcome AIC Executive Director Beth Werlin to North Carolina and hear her update on (and assessment of) the immigration battles in Washington.

Beth will be joined at the podium by Raul Pinto, Staff Attorney with the North Carolina Justice Center’s Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project, who will provide additional information on the state of the immigration debate in North Carolina.

Don’t miss this very special event!
