One Nation, One Standard: An Ex-Liberal on How Hispanics Can Succeed Just Like Other Immigrant Groups April 13, 2008
Sunday, April 13
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Old South Meeting House
Since our nation’s founding, those who come here fleeing poverty and persecution abroad have formed a vibrant and important part of American culture. Today, however, America is facing an onslaught of issues surrounding immigration, both legal and illegal. Congressman Herman Badillo, who rose from poverty to become the first Puerto Rican native elected to the U.S. Congress, says his community’s path to prosperity, political unity, and the American mainstream must be through self-reliance. Does liberal social policy do more harm than good? Does success for immigrant communities lie in the restoration of traditional values? Join us tonight as Herman Badillo addresses these questions that impact every American.
Book signing will follow lecture and discussion.
This program is presented in collaboration with the Old South Meeting House as part of the Partners in Public Dialogue Series.
