With the controversial announcement setting the clock ticking for the abolishment of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an informational meeting will be held Thursday at First Methodist Church to discuss immigration.
The event, which will be held at 7 p.m. at 200 West Main Street, will feature speaker Denise Rocha, associate director with the Migrant Education Program based in Nashville. She will discuss the contributions migrants make on the community, the demographics of immigrants and Latinos in Warren County, misconceptions about the Latino community and resources to help support immigrants and how to get involved.
The event is being sponsored by Ignite for Progress Warren County which is a non-partisan, grassroots group committed to fostering an inclusive and equitable community here. The event this Thursday will also include local speakers who will talk about local issues and resources available in Warren County.
