Part I: A Deep Dive into Causes of Migration



Over the past two years, the U.S. government has admitted hundreds of thousands of people seeking protection. Republican governors of Texas, Arizona and Florida have transported many of these people to Democratic cities, primarily Washington D.C., New York and Chicago. The arrival of these immigrants, who join the more than 11 million undocumented people living in the U.S., has highlighted the serious failures of social policies intended to promote the well-being of all people comprising U.S. society today. 


Join the first in a series of conversations called Contextualizing the Migrant Crisis Narrative in which we will address the various historical, economic and political factors forcing people from across Latin America and the Caribbean to migrate to the United States.

We invite you to register for the next two sessions:


Part Two is scheduled for Thursday, February 1 at 10 am CT, and will focus on Chicago’s response to the urgent need of new arrivals at the community, city, and state level, as well as lessons learned. 


Concluding the series on Thursday, February 22 at 9:30 am CT is Part Three, addressing the tension between Black and Latino communities but also among new arrivals and the long-term undocumented.
