Event description

Description

As we approach the end of the first year of President Trump’s presidency, perhaps no topic has generated greater headlines or had greater practical impacts than the President’s actual, proposed, and likely further changes to the immigration system. Programs like Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA),the International Entrepreneur Rule (IER), the H-4 visa, or extended Optional Practical Training (OPT) for Science, Technology, Education, and Math (STEM) students have either been terminated, are in the process of being terminated or widely expected to be terminated in the coming months.

What does this mean for San Francisco? How will this impact our city? How will this impact our education systems? How will this impact the tech industry?

Join sf.citi, FWD.us, the ACLU of Northern California, Harvard Alumni for Education, and industry leaders for a night of cocktails and conversation on the current status of immigration reform in DC and how these changes are affecting the tech industry and Bay Area immigrants.

Doors will open at 6:00pm and the panel will begin at 6:30pm. The program includes:

Opening remarks on the importance of passing the DREAM Act by SV Angel Founder and Co-Managing Partner, Ron Conway.

Presentation on the Current Landscape of Immigration in California and Beyond from ACLU of Northern California Senior Staff Attorney, Vasudha Talla.

Panel conversation exploring how recent changes to immigration law will affect San Franciscans, featuring:

  • Mark Ranneberger, Northern California Director, FWD.us

  • Alejandra Zapatero, Managing Attorney, Erickson Immigration Group

  • Senator Scott Wiener

  • and more to be announced!


Following the panel, the audience will have a chance to ask questions to the panelists and speakers.

Drinks and small bites will be provided.

The One City Forum engages sf.citi members and community leaders to convene and discuss issues important to San Franciscans, including affordability, homelessness, and education. Through these regular events, we bring leaders from across sectors to share best practices, ideas, and solutions.

*sf.citi events are inclusive of all community members. If you are a representative from a nonprofit organization or cannot attend due to financial constraints, please email Jennifer at jennifer@sfciti.org for tickets.*
