Issues surrounding immigration and refugees broadly affect the work we do in our communities – from philanthropic investments in our schools to health and human services to workforce development and many other areas. To inform this work, it is important to understand where we have been and where we are now. Mr. Chishti is a national expert in the field and will present on the history and context of U.S. immigration issues. He will be followed by a panel of local experts who will discuss issues pertaining to immigration and refugees and their impact on Colorado.

Funders are encouraged to invite staff colleagues, trustees and donors to attend this nonpartisan, educational conversation that will provide facts on immigration and refugee issues.

Light refreshments will be served. Space is limited. There is no registration fee but an RSVP is required by May 17. Please note there is an afternoon session of this program geared toward nonprofit organizations.

Program begins promptly at 9:00 a.m.
