Resources By Issue - Immigration

For many of us, immigration is not a distant national issue; it is part of our everyday lives. We need to decide together what to do about issues such as the effect of immigration on racial tensions, jobs, and schools, language differences, and prejudice against immigrants.

Dialogue-to-change programs provide a process to help build the trusting relationships necessary for long-term change. Study circles bring people from diverse backgrounds and experiences together so they can develop trust, understand each other's experiences, and find ways to work together.
