Dear friends at First Parish,NeedhamImmigrationTaskForce

Through the good graces of her mother, Phyllis Mays (a member of the immigration group I chair), the Needham Area Immigration Justice Task Force is able to cosponsor with the Needham Human Rights Committee a presentation by one of the preeminent immigration lawyers in the country.  The speaker, Margaret Stock, will offer what I expect to be a powerful analysis of the Future of Immigration Reform  in the United States.  Her contributions to society were recognized by the MacArthur Foundation in granting her one of the highly-coveted  “Genius Awards.”

Achieving comprehensive, humane immigration reform in this country is a matter that should concern us all.  It is, in fact, critical to the future of maintaining a vital democracy in our society.  Please consider coming if you are available on June 8. The event will be at 7:30 at the Broadmeadow School, 120 Broad Meadow Road in Needham.
