Castro Institute held a roundtable, “Shedding More Light, Less Heat on Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” on Oct. 18, 2012 at Phoenix College. Community leaders and local officials discussed what immigration reform means to Arizona, received legislative updates and strategized about additional engagement work and other voices needed to continue moving forward.

Ofelia Cañez of Phoenix College RCI and Monica Keyes of Arizona State University welcomed the gathering and introduced Ariz. State Representative Ruben Gallego, Ariz. State Senator Anna Tovar, attorney and activist Daniel R. Ortega Jr., and members from United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
