On Wednesday, June 29, 2016, Georgetown University’s Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life will host a discussion on immigration led by and for young Latino leaders.
The Initiative’s event Immigration Experiences: Human, Political, and Economic Dimensions will explore the “ethical questions at the heart of immigration” from the perspective of Latino leaders and experts in the field. Three leaders will first give an account of their migration stories, followed by a panel discussion of the policy and economic issues around immigration. The panel speakers include:
- Luis Cardona, director, Street Outreach Network, Children, Youth, and Family Services, Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services;
- Ashley Feasley, director of advocacy for the Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC) and adjunct professor of law at Catholic University of America;
- Antonio Tijerino, president and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation and executive producer of the Hispanic Heritage Awards.
After the panel José Miguel Pulido, founder of Catholic Latino Leadership Initiative, will give the closing remarks.
The event includes a reception from 6:00-6:30 pm, with the panel discussion beginning at 6:30 and ending at 8:00 pm. It will be held in the North Conference Room of the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington, DC.
