June LLCC Event Addresses Immigration and Workforce Issues
July 13, 2014 | Chicago, IL
The June 26th Learn. Lead. Create Community. salon series event hosted at Erie Neighborhood House's historic Templeton Hall featured a panel discussion with Rebecca Shi, Executive Director for Illinois Business Immigrant Coalition (IBIC); Erie House Director of Workforce Development, Julian Lazalde, and Erie House Job Developer, Jesus "Chuy" Rodriguez.
We put together a special five-minute audio story to help translate some of the event's character, spirit and content.
Three events remain in the LLCC salon series on immigration: The next, on July 24th, will addres immigration and education; in August, we will host a forum on labor rights issues as they related to immigrants; then, the series will wrap up in September by asking the question, "Where are we now?" from a Latino perspective.
