The planning for the Northwest Ohio Immigration Forum continues on August 3rd, 2012 at noon at the FLOC conference room at 1223 Broadway Ave., Toledo. ALL ARE WELCOME!
The momentum is building for our forum on Thursday, September 13 from 5 - 9 p.m. This is an important topic for our community and we have elected and appointed officials ears for the time-being. Baldemar has been drumming up attendance and support for the forum as he speaks throughout the country. We anticipate that our Congresswoman Kaptur, city and county law enforcement, the legal community and members affected by immigration to be in attendance.
We will be discussing the following:
- Flow and topic for speakers;
- Determining which elected and appointed officials should be on the panel;
- Opportunities for sponsors (we do need a couple of dollars here);
- Getting the word out.

Editor’s Note: US Rep. Marcy Kaptur voted against the DREAM Act; August 3rd would be a good time to meet with her and ask her why she voted against the DREAM Act, especially since President Barack Obama supported the DREAM Act. Moreover, on June 15, 2012, President Obama issued an Executive Order—effective August 14, 2012—implementing many of the provisions of the DREAM Act passed by the House of Representatives in December, 2010.
