The immigration debate is impacting us all- locally, nationally and globally. This program will enable participants to learn more about immigration legislation and the political climate in Massachusetts, discussing issues including asylum, refugees, and changing civil society strategies. It will also create a safe, shared space through facilitated dialogue for participants to explore their own perspectives and identities surrounding these issues.
Join HI Boston and members of the local community in this learning session and facilitated dialogue around immigration in Massachusetts. Learn about the evolving context and policies from knowledgeable presenters working in the field, hear others stories and experiences, and enrich your understanding through dialogue.
This program is FREE and open to anyone. All participants will receive a free stay at the HI Boston hostel (the night of Friday September 28th). In addition, all meal are provided during the program.
