Upcoming Webinar

Immigration is a polarizing issue for Americans. The need for broad support for immigrants and better immigration policies is critical. How do you reach across political “tribes” and beyond your own base to build coalitions with progressives, conservatives and the “exhausted majority” of Americans who feel left out of the immigration movement, forgotten in the tribal politics and are open to compromise?

Register for Beyond Partisan: Bridging Divides Across the Immigration Debate, a free, interactive webinar hosted by The Immigrant Learning Center’s Public Education Institute on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM EDT to hear evidence-based strategies from the authors of Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape and The New Minority: White Working Class Politics in an Age of Immigration and Inequality as well as groups like the Cato Institute and the Evangelical Immigration Table.

This free webinar is open to the public, including policy-makers, activists and concerned Americans. If you have any questions, you can contact Meghan Rosenberg at mrosenberg@ilctr.org.

You will learn: 

  • Who make up America’s political “tribes” and how they view immigrants
  • Which values, messages and themes most resonate with Americans
  • How to build lasting alliances and coalitions with those beyond your own political base
