This past Friday, we at Democracia USA were proud to host a roundtable discussion on immigration reform with Florida leaders and special guest, Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum. Our discussion covered lessons learned from the 2006-2007 immigration debate, and the steps we need to take in our respective communities to organize between now and the day a piece of sound immigration reform legislation is placed in the House hopper.
From faith and business leaders to the community organizers and elected officials around the table we all recognize that the way we organize in Miami can serve as a model for immigration reform organizing around the country. We all also know that we have a lot of work to do.
