Blog for Iowa: Sanctuary City and Immigration in Iowa (Part Two)
Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa
Last week, as part of the Martin Luther King Junior Human Rights Week, a group of citizens in the labor and faith communities presented an event at the Iowa City Public Library on immigration and the idea of making Iowa City more welcoming to immigrants by becoming a Sanctuary City. On Monday, February 1 at 7:00 PM, the University of Iowa Graduate Social Work Student Association and the Social Work Student Association in collaboration with the University of Iowa Center for Human Rights and the Iowa City Human Rights Commission will make a different presentation on the subject of refugees and immigrants. Why the attention to immigration?
