10/23: MAPJ Fall Lecture - Judy Ancel
MAPJ FALL LECTURE:
Director of the Institute for Labor Studies
University of Missouri, Kansas City
“Immigration and the Right to Work:
The 2012 Election and Beyond”
TUESDAY, OCT. 23, 7:00 PM
Leadership Studies Town Hall Room
Kansas State University
Judy Ancel has worked with unions, immigrant workers, and immigrant rights organizations, and has testified to the legislatures of Kansas and Missouri. She is a strong opponent of the exclusionist legislation pushed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
Ancel’s interest in immigration issues grows out of years of teaching and activism related to working people in a global economy. Her many trips to Mexico have brought her in close touch with families surviving by sending a family member to the U.S. She argues that current immigration laws fail to provide for our country's needs for immigrant labor, or for the needs of American working citizens. She will offer a positive proposal for a sensible and humane immigration policy that can draw broad public support in the years ahead.
