Immigration Webinar Flyer Dec 1 22 png.png

You are invited to attend a virtual webinar to be held on Thursday, December 1 from 7-8:15pm featuring a panel of guest speakers to introduce the subject of U.S. immigration. A brief Q&A will follow. The League of Women Voters of New Jersey invites both its members and the public to register and attend.

 

The speakers, and topics covered, are:

 

·       Ashley Zampogna-Krug, Brookdale, NJ Community College History Professor, will provide background about our founding as an immigrant nation and identify legislation, highlight policies, court decisions, and Executive Orders that explain our current immigration system. 

·       Brenda Carballos and Karla Ortega, two DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients, will speak about their experiences in this program, created by Executive Order in 2012. The program requires congressional action in order to provide permanent status for recipients, survive persistent court challenges, and perhaps provide a pathway to U.S. citizenship.

·       Taylor Jung, social justice reporter for New Jersey Spotlight News, will identify current local and national immigration issues.

·       Deborah Macmillan will discuss the League of Women Voters longtime advocacy on this topic and invite community participation in its ongoing discussions.

 

The public is invited to register at this link: bit.ly/lwvimmigrationwebinar. Questions may be submitted at registration and in the Zoom webinar. 

       
Rooted in the century-long movement that secured the right to vote for women, the League of Women Voters has worked to foster civic engagement and enhance access to the vote since our founding in 1920.
 
Over time our work has evolved from efforts to gain and foster women’s suffrage to ensuring that all eligible voters -- particularly those from traditionally underrepresented or under-served communities, including first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, minorities, the elderly and voters with disabilities -- have the opportunity and the information to exercise their right to vote.

We welcome women, men, young adults, and teens to join our League.
 
      Dues are $60 per year.
      Family membership is $85 per year.
      Student membership is free.
