Will the fall elections bring changes for New York’s immigrants? Can New York City’s immigrant friendly policies mitigate the failures to act by our national and state governments? We’ve invited two women who have followed immigration issues most closely to speculate on the answers to these questions. Nisha Agarwal, Commissioner of the New York City Office of Immigrant Affairs, will introduce us to the many City-sponsored programs that help immigrants, including the brand new municipal identification card. Jacki Esposito is the founder of Inspire Group, a government relations and public affairs firm based in New York City. Ms. Esposito will discuss the chances of the passage of national immigration reform and of enactment by the state legislature of the NY State DREAM Act. Date: Thursday, November 6, 2014 Time: 6:00pm Location: Stella and Charles Guttman Community College (50 West 40th Street) The event is free and open to the public but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
