LOS ANGELES, CA, April 12, 2017 – The Mediators Beyond Borders International Los Angeles Chapter is pleased to present a groundbreaking lecture and interactive training, “The Intersection of Immigration Law and Community Dialogue.” This one-time event will take place on Saturday, April 15, 2017 1-4 pm at the LA84 Foundation, 2141 West Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016.
The Intersection of Immigration Law and Community Dialogue includes a short panel presentation to provide information on immigration law/immigration rights today and the immigrant experience. It will be followed by an interactive, facilitated, community dialogue to elicit individual members of the public and other participants’ attitudes toward immigration and to provide tools for understanding varying perspectives on difficult issues in effective public discourse about immigration to the United States.
This event addresses historic issues relating to the current national climate on temporary, permanent and refugee migration to the U.S., and attempts to understand the rapidly changing immigration laws—with a view toward facilitating conversation now, and in the future, around these issues in productive ways. It stands to be a blueprint for future dialogues and presentations on these issues as this is the first event of its kind. [Read more…]
