The times, they are a-changin'. With Minnesota's impending Silver Tsunami and the influx of immigrants and refugees who have come to make this place home, our demographics are in the midst of some serious change. If you've got ideas for how we can make sure to leverage all Minnesotans' current and future potential to contribute to once again making this place the "State that works," you're invited to participate in the South Asian Immigration Roundtable being facilitated by the Advocates for Human Rights!

The Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans is organizing a South Asian immigration roundtable by facilitated by Emily Good, Refugee & Immigrant Program Director at The Advocates for Human Rights.

Purpose of the Roundtable:
America is a nation of immigrants and as we work to rebuild the economy, our ability to thrive depends, in part, on restoring responsibility and accountability to the immigration system. We are seeking a diverse of stakeholders who care about addressing the concerns and needs of those affected by immigration to provide their voices at the roundtable.

Through the roundtable, we aim to listen to community voices to better inform policy-makers on how the immigration system affects South Asian Minnesotans. Feedback collected at the roundtable will be submitted to Minnesota's congressional legislators and to the Obama Administration.
