Our featured speakers include: Mo Goldman, Tucson immigration attorney, who will speak to how we got to this point in immigration, how it is being handled now as opposed to 2012-2016, and what to expect going forward.
Lorena Verdugo, Community Health Adviser/Community Health Coordinator for El Rio Health Center and Coordinator of Ventanilla de Salud in the Mexican Consulate. From her vantage point in health care services, Lorena will bring the stories of immigrants finding their way locally and how that affects them and our community.
