Join the conversation on immigration in Minnesota


The Twin Cities Daily Planet’s series, The New Normal: Deciding Community Priorities in a Downsized Economy, tackles a different issue each month. In July we’ll be talking about immigration, and will ask people in the Twin Cities: “How can we fix immigration policy?”   

Come and chat with others over snacks, learn some basics about trends in immigration, and let us know how you think we should reform immigration policy. We’ll be using research from the Wilder Foundation’s MN Compass project and an article from the Twin Cities Daily Planet to get this interactive conversation going. By participating in this discussion, though, you’ll provide the part that matters most. We’ll report on these conversations in the TC Daily Planet, and will share the results with policy makers.
