ENGAGE: Immigrants in Michigan: The Untold Story
April 1, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Immigrants have made vast contributions to this state - economically, politically, and socially. The fabric of American society was created by the contributions of a diverse range of immigrants. As a nation, however, we continue to suppress and demonize immigrants. This session explores the untold story of immigrants in Michigan, from undocumented and documented populations, to immigration issues and struggles that we, as social workers, are obligated to be knowledgeable about.
Special guests include Executive Director of the Office of Global Michigan; Executive Director of the International Institute, Wojciech Zolnowski; Executive Director and Founder of the African Bureau for Immigrant and Social Affairs, Fatou Seydi-Sarr; and founder of the Washtenaw Immigration Rights Coalition (WIRC), Laura Sanders.
Field credit is offered to students attending this session. Students should check with their field faculty supervisors for more information.Event Recording
