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.

Combatants for Peace (CfP) is a group of former Israeli and Palestinian fighters who now embrace nonviolent struggle. They believe that joint action is necessary to break cycles of violence and achieve peace and reconciliation between Palestinians and Israelis. The presentation includes both Israeli and Palestinian men and women who will share their individual experiences as fighters and explain why they see joint non-violent advocacy for a two-state solution as the best means of ensuring peace and justice in the region.
