Join us on October 11 for a book talk and Q&A with Ruth Milkman, one of the editors of Immigration Matters: Movements, Visions, and Strategies for a Progressive Future.

Immigration Matters offers a new, actionable vision for immigration policy, bringing together movement leaders and academics to share cutting-edge approaches and fresh solutions to the urgent issues facing the immigrant community.

The book explores the contributions of immigrants to the nation’s identity, its economy, and progressive movements for social change. It also delves into a variety of topics including new ways to frame immigration issues, fresh thinking on key aspects of policy, challenges of integration, workers’ rights, family reunification, legalization, paths to citizenship, and humane enforcement. Immigration Matters is the perfect handbook for activists, scholars, policy makers, and anyone who cares about immigration.

Ruth Milkman is a Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the CUNY Graduate Center and the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies. She is the co-editor (with Deepak Bhargava and Penny Lewis) of Immigration Matters (The New Press).

This event is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative, the Institute of Governmental Studies, and the Multicultural Community Center.
