Immigration and Community Revitalization


Join the College of Public Affairs as it hosts UB's 2012 Constitution Day events.

co-sponsored by the UB School of Law’s Immigrant Rights Clinic

How does the constitution impact immigrants' rights? And how does immigration affect the face of our own local communities?

Join us for lunch--and some food for thought. We'll explore community diversity and integration; an overview of the immigrant populations moving into Baltimore and the role that cities, states and host communities play in aiding immigrants; services offered to immigrant communities; and legal issues/barriers to justice that impact these communities.

This panel discussion is moderated by Elizabeth Keyes, assistant professor in the UB School of Law and director of the school's Immigrant Rights Clinic.

Panel members include:

  • Holly Leon-Lierman of the International Rescue Committee
  • Trent Leon-Lierman of CASA Maryland
  • Heather Wyatt-Nichol, assistant professor in the College of Public Affairs

This event is free and open to the public.
