Local Lives, Global Currents: Conversations on Immigration, Identity, and the Transformation of Pittsburgh

4:30-6:00PM / Giant Eagle Auditorium, Baker Hall A51

In this year’s U.S. presidential campaign, immigrants and immigration policy loom large.  Republican candidate Donald Trump has called for building walls to keep out Mexicans and imposing bans on Muslims. Many people have condemned his ideas as “un-American” but at the same time, the United States government has deported record numbers of people over the past ten years and hate crimes against Muslims have increased.  How does Pittsburgh fit into these tense national contexts?

This panel features representatives from three Pittsburgh organizations that work closely with diverse groups of people — including U.S. citizens, undocumented immigrants and political refugees — who are helping to transform Pittsburgh.
