4th Virginia Immigrant Advocates Summit
Annandale United Methodist Church, Annandale VA

Since its foundation in 2010, the Virginia Immigrant Advocates Summit brings together hundreds of immigrant rights advocates and allies from across the state to discuss issues important to immigrant communities in Virginia. This year we will gather to learn and debate about priorities for the upcoming 2014 Virginia General Assembly Session as well as issues relevant to immigrants living and working in Virginia. We expect this year will be another great opportunity to come together in a sense of community and support for a Virginia that is welcoming and where all of its residents are respected. Some of the issues that will be addressed are included below.
