The Importance of Local Elections for Immigration Policy

October 07, 2020 • 12:30 PM • Virtual

While immigration law is federal, the policies enacted by local elected officials can shape immigration enforcement measures and efforts to include and support immigrants and refugees. Please join us for a panel discussion with Spencer Bloom, Civic Engagement Organizer at El Pueblo in Raleigh, and Stefania Arteaga, Immigrants' Rights Organizer at ACLU of North Carolina. The speakers will address the advances achieved through past local elections and the stakes involved in the upcoming 2020 local elections.
