Part III: Addressing the Tensions Between Historically Marginalized Communities

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. 

 

As tensions continue to grow between various racial and ethnic groups regarding the arrival of newcomers, join us for Part III of the series Contextualizing the Migrant Crisis Narrative. We will assess Chicago’s ability to respond to the needs of historically marginalized/excluded communities and their well-being in the context of these rising tensions. 

 

This will be a bilingual conversation with simultaneous interpretation in English and Spanish.
