March 20: Fear Factor: Immigrants and Refugees in Colorado

Immigration and refugee issues have been at the forefront of the public policy arena for many years now and during the 2016 election both major parties put forth starkly contrasting platforms concerning these critical topics. Since his inauguration, the President has begun implementing a number of initiatives that have proven to have profound consequences for many of our neighbors. In Colorado, legislators have also attempted to push through legislation this session aimed at addressing these issues.

Next Monday, March 20, is Latino Advocacy Day in Colorado and we are proud to host a panel featuring:

  • Rosemary Rodriguez, Denver Public School Board Member
  • Jamie Torres, Deputy Director of the Denver Agency for Human Rights and Community Partnerships and Staff Liaison for the Denver Immigrant and Refugee Commission
  • Paula Schriefer, Executive Director of the Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning

Where: Basement of First Baptist Church of Denver; 1373 Grant Street, Denver, CO 80203 
When: March 20, 2017 12:00PM-1:15PM
