Purpose

Immigration has been and continues to be one of the key forces sustaining and driving America’s success. However, due to federal inaction and the anti-immigrant rhetoric of the political right, Congress has been unable to pass a comprehensive reform bill to empower a new generation of immigrants to fully contribute to our way of life. This session will discuss the current policy and political outlook for immigration reform and the tools and strategies needed to help groups mobilize their communities and influence Congress to support humane and progressive change.
