As Jews, we are no strangers to the concept of immigration. Our families were all immigrants from somewhere, facing difficult choices along the way. In today’s world, we are hearing about various issues surrounding immigration on a daily basis. Join us on a year-long series to explore a 360° view of immigration, helping us to gain a more nuanced understanding of the state of immigration in America today. Every month, we will have a speaker join us to share their point of view on immigration – from attorneys and judges to those in the process of immigration, from government employees to school counselors – each providing a unique look at immigration today. Following their presentation to our teens, our speakers will spend an hour with our lifelong learners covering these same issues.
Our speaker this month is Terry Angelotti, Executive Director of the Centreville Immigration Forum (CIF). She was a founding member of the CIF Board of Directors and became Executive Director in August, 2014. She has many years of experience in community development, issue-based advocacy relating to poverty issues, administration of grant programs, and program management in faith-based organizations.
