The National Immigration Forum advocates for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation. The Forum is one of the few organizations to work across a broad political spectrum, from right to left and both nationally and locally. Given recent news on DACA and the fact that California is home to 29% of the United States' Dreamers, this work is more important than ever.

Ali Noorani is the author of the new book, There Goes The Neighborhood: How Communities Overcome Prejudice and Meet the Challenge of American Immigration, published in April of 2017.

Restaurant Opportunities United (ROC-United) engages workers, employers and consumers to improve the wages and working conditions in the restaurant industry.

The League of Women Voters of Palo Alto is a nonpartisan political organization, which encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
