The 7th Baltimore Immigration Summit will take place Friday, October 24 from 7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center of Baltimore, 5750 Park Heights Ave. Baltimore, MD 21215.

The theme of this year’s summit is “Living, Working, Growing Together.”

Keynote Address

Sheena Wadhawan of CASA de Maryland will present the keynote address: “Hostile Nation: Compulsive Deportation and Inhumane Treatment of Underage Immigrants and Refugees Redefines American Values and Identity."
