Citizen Dialogue: Immigration

Click here to see a recording of this event.

Thursday, October 19
7 - 9 pm
WSU Student Center Building, Ballroom A&B

How long has it been since you have had a calm, reasoned discussion with someone you didn’t agree with on the subject of immigration? Most of us have strong opinions one way or the other, and in this time of personalized information streams, sometimes it’s hard to understand why smart people can think so differently on this issue.

The Center is offering you a chance to hear smart people on several sides of the issue present what they actually think and why, both with each other and then directly with the audience.

Brian Dickerson of the Detroit Free Press will moderate a formal presentation from experts holding different opinions about Immigration. They will discuss common ground as well as differences in opinions on immigration issues.

After the moderated dialogue between the speakers, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in moderated conversation in a coffeehouse-type atmosphere. You can actually speak directly with people who may have very good reasons for their beliefs, that you may not have considered. At the same time, you may be able to help others understand your side.

Tickets are $5 ($2 for students with ID) and are available at the door, or in advance here. The closest available campus parking is in Parking Structure 2; there is a $7.75 cost to park, and a credit or debit card is required. For more information, contact citizenship@wayne.edu.

It’ll be fun! It’ll be democracy! There will be coffee and cookies!
