UNC Update: US Immigration and North Carolina
November 16, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us to hear from Raul Pinto, Staff Attorney in the Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project at the North Carolina Justice Center, and Alma Islas, a senior at UNC and member of Students United for Immigrant Equality (SUIE), in a discussion of US immigration and its relation to North Carolina. Alma will be sharing her personal story as well as how it relates to the House Bill 318 (“Protect North Carolina Workers Act”). This event will last around an hour.
UNC Update is a three-week, bring-you-up-to-speed discussion of relevant and often misunderstood current events hosted by UNC Professors, students, and student groups. The weekly events are around an hour in length and provide basic information on topics students want to learn about but don’t know how.
This semester, we have decided to focus our series on population movements and three particular trends as they relate to this topic: the Syrian Refugee Crisis and Europe, US Immigration and North Carolina, and Burmese Refugee Relocation and Chapel Hill.
