Monthly Membership Meeting; Program: Immigration

  • Eau Claire Democratic Resource Center 440 Broadway St. Eau Claire, WI 54703 (map)

Immigration.  It's in the news.  What do we know about its impact in our area?

 •  Joyce and David Anderson, members of JONAH (Joining Our Neighbors Advancing Hope) and co-chairs of the immigration task force will provide information and conversation about what benefits immigrants bring to the Chippewa Valley and what challenges our neighbors and our community face.

 •  A focal point will be the number one concern for immigrant residents, which is restoring drivers licenses to immigrants who are here without documents.   Governor Evers' has placed drivers licenses in his budget.  Together we will discuss how we can support this budget item and why it is important for everyone.

•  It is hoped that participants will leave informed and willing to act in support of our immigrant neighbors.

Jonah is a local organization focused on Social Justice issues.
