Join us at Cowles Auditorium from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (NOTE TIME CHANGE!) to honor two Immigrants of Distinction and hear from a panel about the current debate over immigration reform. After the U of M event, we encourage you to attend the hearing at the Capitol!
The Immigrant of Distinction Award was developed by the Minnesota/Dakotas chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association in 2007 as a way to publically recognize and honor the contributions of immigrants in the local community.
This year's theme of “Educate, Honor & Unite: A Community Forum for Immigration Reform in 2013” will focus on the positive contributions of young individuals from immigrant communities. The event will provide immigrant communities an opportunity to learn about the current discussion on comprehensive immigration reform.
Award ceremony and panel discusion will be held at the Cowles Auditorium from 12:00pm - 2:00pm, follow by a reception in the Humphrey Atrium.
