A Conference on Immigration 

California stands at odds with the Federal immigration law. As the Trump administration ramps up ICE activity and seeks to build a wall between Mexico and the United States, California lawmakers are offering resistance and opposition at every turn, most recently with the passage of SB54, the California Sanctuary State Bill. The immigration debate around Proposition 187 profoundly changed California – what happens this time?  We’ll look at DACA, Sanctuary legislation, labor, impact on agriculture and the economy, H-1B Visas and more.  Join us!

Speakers, including Chiqui Cartagena of Univision, Jennie Pasquarella of ACLU of Southern California, Dan Morain of the Sacramento Bee, Ted Lempert of Chidren Now, Hector Barajas of Merino, Barajas & Allen, and Peter Leroe-Muņoz of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group will discuss these and other issues.

Additional speakers, including the Keynote, will be announced as they confirm.

Register by October 20 to get the Early Registration rate of $149. Regular registration rate is $199. Registration includes lunch and all conference materials.

Special $99 rate for California state government staff.
