Notice body

Community members are invited to participate in a facilitated discussion on immigration on Tuesday, July 17 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Pebble Hill.

Immigration is an issue that affects nearly every American in some way, and public discussion is often divisive and unproductive. This event is an opportunity for community members to discuss how the issue affects them personally and determine areas where they agree and disagree. A non-partisan issue guide published by National Issues Forums will encourage deliberation, and registered participants will receive the issue guide electronically in advance of the event.

The event is co-sponsored by Building Community Across Barriers, or BCaB, of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Lee County Spirit of Democracy, Alabama Together, St. Mary’s Catholic Church and the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University. Mary Lee Carter with BCaB will facilitate the forum.

The event is free, but space is limited. To reserve a spot and receive the issue guide in advance, contact Mark Wilson at mwilson@auburn.edu or 844-6198. Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben St., and parking is available.
