Citizen Dialogue: Immigration

Date and time

October 19, 2017, from 7 to 9 p.m.

About this event

How long has it been since you have had a calm, reasoned discussion with someone you didn’t agree with on the subject of immigration? Most of us have strong opinions one way or the other, and in this time of personalized information streams, sometimes it’s hard to understand why smart people can think so differently on this issue.

Brian Dickerson of the Detroit Free Press joins us to moderate a formal presentation from experts holding different opinions about Immigration. They will discuss common ground as well as differences in opinions on immigration issues.

After the moderated dialogue between the speakers, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a moderated conversation in a coffeehouse-type atmosphere. You can actually speak directly with people who may have very good reasons for their beliefs that you may not have considered. At the same time, you may be able to help others understand your side.
