7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Where do you get your information on important issues such as Immigration Reform?  NPR? Fox News? Facebook? How do you make sense of the information?  Would you like to hear from people involved in this work every day?  Please join us as we hear from three experts in the field of immigration.

Our panel will provide important insights into the complex issues involved in the current immigration crisis and help us understand how these issues impact our community.

Panel members include:

Tatiana Obando, Managing Attorney of RAICES--Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services. RAICES promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families and refugees in Central and South Texas. RAICES is the largest immigration non-profit in Texas with offices in Austin, Corpus, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.

Gordon J. Quan, Immigration and Nationality Law--Texas Board of Legal Specialization. As managing partner of the Quan Law Group, Mr. Quan assists clients with both complex and ordinary immigration problems. Mr. Quan was the first Asian-American elected to Houston’s City Council where he helped support the user-friendly Office for Immigration and Refugee Affairs.

Brett Perlman, President and CEO of the Center for Houston's Future (CHF). The Center focuses on community indicators that serve as the region's report card on achieving a balance between the social, environmental and economic factors necessary to attain a competitive and sustainable place in the 21st Century. Earlier this year CHF published a report “Houston’s Economic Future; Immigration.”

Each of our presenters brings a unique perspective to this important discussion. We will hear real stories and information from our speakers which will enable us to formulate our own opinions on this important topic.

This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are requested so we can plan accordingly by visiting our website at emanuelhouston.org or call 713.529.5771. A dessert reception will follow.
