Join the Geauga County Democrats for Spaghetti Dinner with a Hot Topic!
January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
The Geauga County Democratic Party will host their monthly Spaghetti Dinner served with a Hot Topic “Lean in on Immigration Reform” on Thursday, January 18th at the Geauga County Democratic Headquarters and Social Hall located at 12420 Kinsman Road, Newbury. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. for Networking, Dinner served at 6:15 pm and Hot Topic begins at 7:00 p.m.
Join local community members in a conversation with Victoria Chavez-Kruse, Rita Danks, and Kathy Flora regional immigration advocates. Businesses have used both legal and undocumented immigration populations as a source of labor for centuries. They will discuss issues impacting our immigrant communities regarding civil rights violations, overreach and the inhumane tearing apart of local families. Also hear updates on how current administration is leveraging young DACA recipients as pawns in passing budget or causing government shutdown; passing a larger immigration reform bill including funding for a border wall; and possibly dangling infrastructure and jobs decisions in the mix.
