Due to the support of many individuals and groups in the community and the investment of time by many both within and outside of the CRC, each of these endeavors has been implemented and in some cases completed. This page is intended to share information about the Immigration Forum that was held on June 23, 2011 at the Goshen High School Auditorium.
The forum involved a presentation by Dr. Steven Nolt (Professor of History at Goshen College) on the history of immigration, a response from Saulo Padilla (Director of Immigration Education for Mennonite Central Committee), and a response from Bob Schrameyer (Founder and President of Citizens for Immigration Law Enforcement). After the main presentation and responses, the audience was invited to participate in a question and answer session. For additional information about the forum please refer to the program which provides information about the speakers, the purpose of this forum, the sponsors and other information that you will find to be helpful.
Approximately 350-400 people from the community attended this event. The slides presented by Dr. Steve Nolt during his presentation can also be viewed on the CRC Facebook page.
Following the forum more than 60 persons signed up to engage in round table discussions. The purpose of the community round tables will be to:
At this point the CRC continues to plan for these round table discussions. If you would like to participate in these round tables please email us so that we can send you an invitation when the date, time and location are determined.
