ImpactFest Food For Thought: Immigration – Diving into DACA
October 5, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
Join us for Food For Thought on Immigration: Diving into DACA as part of ImpactFest, Impact Hub’s week of social impact events. We’re putting out a call to action with an engaging conversation on DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Immigration lawyer Julie Gharagouzloo will lead us in a conversation about what our government’s recent changes to DACA will mean for our friends, neighbors, and fellow residents of this country, and how we can help. Join us along with other curious learners and interested change makers at the Impact Hub Boston community table for a thought provoking discussion about what’s happening with DACA, what it all means, and how to support the movement for justice.
Food For Thoughts are casual brown bag lunch discussions around a particular social impact topic, but this Food for Thought in particular is a special breakfast edition! We’ll provide a light breakfast spread and coffee.
