Immigration Policy and Relationship between Immigrants and Citizens, Part 1 - May 17, 2017

Join host jim justice as we listen to excerpts of speeches by Hiroshi Motomura, a leading scholar of American immigration and citizenship, recorded in Bellingham on May 3, 2017. Hiroshi Motomura was awarded a 2017 Guggenheim Fellowship for 2018 to work on his new book, Migrants, Refugees and Citizens. He is Vice Chair of the Board of the National Immigration Law Center, Founding Director of the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network and a professor of immigration law at UCLA. What is immigration policy now?

Hiroshi asks whether immigration is as a matter of Civil Rights: What do we do with people who are fleeing intolerable conditions in their home country? What is the relationship between Immigrants and Citizens? And, he talks about the presumed economic displacement of citizens by immigrants taking jobs here.

Books by Hiroshi Motomura: American's in Waiting and Immigration Outside the Law.

Indivisible Skagit and the Environment Sub-Group - May 3, 2017

When former congressional staffers wrote the Indivisible Guide to resist the Trump agenda, it helped fill a bleak void following the November election. With specific, practical recommendations for action, the guide went online in December 2016, went viral, and has inspired almost 6,000 Indivisible groups to form nationwide.

The Skagit Indivisible group is comprised of over 700 Facebook members with varying interests, as reflected in several sub-groups. Julia Hurd interviews Brenda Cunningham and Peggy Ratermann, Co-Chairs of the Skagit Indivisible Environment sub-group. They talk about their experiences with the Indivisible movement, how the environment sub-group is organized and its current focus, which includes local and national issues.

Women in Politics, Part 1 - April 12, 2017

Here is the challenge presented by a panel talking about increasing women in leadership held recently in Skagit as part of a series being presented by the Women's Funding Alliance. Are you happy about the state of government now at any level? If not, what are you planning to do about it? If you want change, you personally need to consider that you should be part of that change. Female candidates are needed at many levels, but support staff is also critical for running a successful campaign.

Moderated by Liz Vivian, President and CEO of the Women's Funding Alliance, listen in on a conversation between Mount Vernon Mayor Jill Boudreau and Sultan Mayor Carolyn Eslick about their experiences, including the trials, running for office. Joining the conversation is Debbie Walsh, Director of the Center for American Women and Politics.

This presentation took place at McIntyre Hall on the Skagit Valley College campus on March 28, 2017. It was presented by the Women's Funding Alliance in collaboration with the Center for American Women and Politics. The Women's Funding Alliance's mission is to advance leadership and economic opportunity for women and girls in Washington State.
