    Room 255 - dinner provided

    As immigrant communities face increasing fear of deportation and immigration policy hurdles into the media spotlight, the planning profession must ask itself how to respond:

    How do we answer rhetoric surrounding immigration & refugees?

    What state and federal policies should we support?

    How can we elevate and foster the economic development and cultural life occurring in immigrant communities?

     This workshop will let economic development and land use professionals from municipalities and CDCs, planning students, and immigrants themselves share stories, successes, and questions.

    Speakers:

    Liza Ryan, Director of Organizing, Mass Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition

    Theresa Park, Planning Director, City of Lawrence

    Sika Sedzro, Pittsfield Transformative Development Initiative Fellow

    Justin Steil, Assistant Professor of Law and Urban Planning, MIT
