Immigration Reform: What's at Stake - How You Can Help

Saturday, August 10, 2013

Sue Weishar
Migration Specialist, Jesuit Social Research Institute of Loyola University

Sue Weishar will be speaking about the upcoming legislation for reforming U.S. immigration policies. There are many ways we can help move this legislation forward, and she will be discussing these and other topics related to the issue. Please come out and learn more about this monumental legislative movement and its ramifications for all of us.

Sue previously spent fourteen years as Director of Immigration and Refugee Services with Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans (1991-2005) and earlier worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Samoa and as a teacher in Guatemala. Most recently, in the years since Katrina, she served as project manager for the Louisiana Refugee Services Collaborative to implement a new state-wide refugee services collaborative, administrator for the Mississippi Immigrant Rights Alliance (MIRA), Gulf Coast Coordinator for the Mississippi Center for Nonprofits, and Director of Development for UNITY of Greater New Orleans.

Also, Sue and programs which she directed have been honored by Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops/Migration and Refugee Services (for Alternatives to Detention), the National Crime Prevention Council (for the Asian Youth Services Program), and the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement (for the Immigrant Domestic Violence Services Program).
