Speaking for Ourselves

Members of Hmong, Karen, Latino, Liberian and Somali communities in Ramsey and Hennepin counties have stories to tell about their aspirations, their health, their economic challenges and more.

Their stories come to St. Cloud State in the person of Nicole MartinRogers, project manager of “Speaking for Ourselves,” a study by Wilder Research, St. Paul.

MartinRogers presents 3:30 p.m. March 2 in the theatre of Atwood Memorial Center. The free, public event is sponored by the Faculty Research Group on Immigrant Workers in Minnesota and the School of Public Affairs.

Immigration Under Trump

Law professor Virgil Wiebe will discuss U.S. immigration law and how it might change 3:30 p.m. March 21 in the theatre of Atwood Memorial Center.

Wiebe is a professor at St. Thomas University, St. Paul. He holds four degrees, including a master's degree from Oxford University, a law degree from New York University and a master of laws from Georgetown University, Washington D.C.

Wiebe will use a hotel metaphor to explain immigration law: U.S. citizens are on the top floor; undocumented immigrants are in the basement; and people of varying legal statues occupy other floors.

The free, public event is sponored by the Faculty Research Group on Immigrant Workers in Minnesota and the School of Public Affairs.
