The historic Immigrants Rights protests earlier this year were the
largest protests on any issue in the history of the U.S. Today
immigrant sweeps and deportations are continuing while anti-immigrant
legislation continues to move through congress. How is race coloring
the national debate on immigration? How can we build stronger
cross-racial and cross-class alliances among communities of color? In
this election year, how can we not be pit against each other, but see
our common ground? How and why especially should faith communities be
involved in this struggle for full human rights, citizenship, dignity
and participation?


Bill Ong Hing is professor of law and Asian American studies at the
University of California at Davis and the author of Defining America
through Immigration Policy. For 3 decades he has worked extensively in
the field including founding and directing the Immigrant Legal Resource
Center, as well as working with Congress & the U.S. Department of
Justice. Defining America through Immigration Policy will be available
for signing and sale after the lecture.
