Immigrants have always been the lifeblood of New Jersey. They’ve expanded our labor force, enriched our culture, seasoned our food, and breathed new life into the arts. Join us for a moderated discussion about the effects of new immigration legislation on the immigrant art community in the state. Updates on DACA and immigrant rights will be discussed as well. Panelists: Nedia Morsy of Make the Road NJ; Daniela C. Vélez of UndocuJersey; immigration attorney, Carmen Carrillo, Esq; and immigrant Latinx artist, Layqa Nuna Yuwar.
