Immigration Forum this Coming Monday at T.C. Williams High School


    The Alexandria Democratic Committee is hosting an Immigration Forum this coming Monday, May 2 at T.C. Williams High School (the auditorium, located at 3330 King St) from 7-9:30PM. I hope anyone interested who can attend will do so.

    We will have a panel of immigration policy experts followed by a Q&A segment.  Afterwards, attendees will be invited to participate in smaller groups for in-depth discussions and to share their insights with the whole body.  The Forum will explore local, state, and national aspects of the immigration issue and the struggles of undocumented persons in the United States. The goal is to enhance our understanding of this complicated issue.

    Speakers at the event will be:
    · Sindy Benavides, Director, Community Outreach of Democratic National Committee, DNC;
    · Adrienne DerVartanian, Senior Attorney/Policy Analyst, Farmworker Justice;
    · Jorge Figueredo, Director Racial Justice and Immigrant Rights Project, ACLU;
    · Tram Nguyen, Deputy Director, Virginia New Majority

    Thanks, Clark Mercer

    Chair, Alexandria Democratic Committee
