Discuss myths and facts of immigration issues

by | Apr 14, 2010

The Greenwood Senior Center is hosting a forum on Hispanic/Latino immigration issues at 12 p.m. on Monday, April 19.

The misconceptions surrounding this issue are numerous and this forum will shed some light on what is myth and what is fact. The forum will consist of a panel of representatives from some of Seattle and Washington’s Hispanic/Latino-focused organizations: One America, Washington Community Action Network, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, and Casa Latina.
Topics include:
A) History and Push-and-Pull factors of immigration
B) The effect immigration has on home countries
C) Issues surrounding immigration/immigrants in the US
D) Presence of Hispanics/Latinos in the workplace
The forum will cover social, political, and economic topics and inspire conversation within the community.

The panel will also field audience questions as time permits. The Greenwood Senior Center is at 525 N. 85th St. For more information, email or call Marianne at 206-297-0875, ext 31.
