Uplifting all voices: A call for inclusive immigration reform debate // Thurs, April 25, 2013 (DC)

Join APALA-DC, NAPAWF-DC, and NQAPIA on Thursday, April 25 for a conversation about comprehensive immigration reform and what it means for those whose needs and voices have been largely marginalized by the dominant national conversation: including temporary workers, LGBTQ Asian immigrants, and immigrant survivors of violence. Hear the latest on the immigration reform debate locally and nationally, share your own stories, and find out how you can advocate for immigrants’ rights in your community.
*Refreshments provided.
