National Issues Forum: Deliberation on Immigration

Friday, October 25, 2019
12:30-3:30 p.m.
Great Path Academy Community Commons

In the next five minutes, while you’re reading this page, 150 new people will have been forced to flee their homes, leaving everything behind. Recent years have seen an increase in the number of displaced peoples worldwide unlike anything before. This unprecedented global movement of people has led many countries into renewed deliberation about their immigration policies and how these affect our communities, and the kinds of values and goals we want to guide our immigration decisions.

Following the National Issues Forum’s process for reasoned and respectful deliberation, small groups will exchange and weigh ideas and options for addressing this challenge, with a goal of understanding its complexities and coming to common ground for action. This event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided. Registration is required.

For more information on the current status of global migration consider also attending the Global Issues Conference on Migration at MCC, October 19, 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. More information about the Global Issues Conference can be found on the event registration page. Registration is required.
