Leadership Breakfast: DACA, Immigration Reform, and The Second City as Sanctuary City
This is a Fellows-Only event
In September, Chicago won a lawsuit challenging the Trump Administration’s restrictions on federal funding for “sanctuary cities,” a ruling that carried with it a national injunction and implications for cities, counties, and states across the country. A panel of experts, activists, and immigrants will reflect on this ruling and what it means for Chicago and our immigrant population, as well as developments around DACA and the most recent travel ban. Speakers will include:
- Mary Meg McCarthy – Executive Director, Heartland Alliance National Immigrant Justice Center
- Alderman Gilbert Villegas (Fellows since 2013) – Co-Founder of Stratagem Consulting Group, LLC
- Raul Raymundo (Fellows since 1996) – CEO of The Resurrection Project
- Moderated by Clarisol Duque (Fellow since 2017) – Chicago Chief of Staff/Director, Office of U.S. Senator Dick Durbin
This event is part of our 2018 Fellows Program Leadership Breakfast Series, which is open to all Fellows this year. The goal of this monthly series is to offer an opportunity to engage with cross-sector leaders who have a unique perspective on current issues and the expertise to provide an inside look.
Hosted by Jenner & Block.
