Conversations on the Edge Presents: Immigration

What do we mean when we say, “America is a nation of immigrants”? According to the Migration Policy Institute, immigrants make up over 13% of the United States population, with some sources citing hundreds of thousands of new arrivals each year. Grassroots organizers and legal experts came together to explore issues that affect immigrants in the United States today, including current and potential protective policies for immigrants and refugees, immigration reform, paths to citizenship, and how local organizations can empower immigrants to participate in their local communities and civic life.

Conversations on the Edge Presents: Immigration took place at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. It was filmed by Kent Thompson, edited by Moussou N'Diaye and produced by CCTV.
