Immigration focus of next CWC talk
Oct 19, 2013 - From staff reports
Immigration is the subject of the second in a series of Central Wyoming College "Hot Topic" discussions. The talk will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday in Robert A. Peck Arts Center Theatre.
A group of invited panelists will discuss the pros and cons of immigration reform.
The confirmed panelists are Rosslyn Read, immigration rights activist from Jackson; Suzan M. Pritchett, a visiting professor teaching immigration law at the University of Wyoming; and Lillian Zuniga, program manager for the Office of Multicultural Health.
Read has an extensive knowledge of immigration law, with a focus on immigration benefits and defense for victims of abuse and violence.
Pritchett teaches courses on gender and the law, international human rights and immigration law. She is the co-director of the Center for Human Rights Law and Advocacy and is the recipient of several public interest and human rights awards.
Zuniga's program is under the Wyoming Department of Health and works to ensure Wyoming's minority residents receive the same quality of health care as the general population.
A free soup and salad lunch follows the discussion in the Arts Center Gallery.
