    Merage Foundation for the American Dream invite you to a colloquium:


    Tuesday, June 2, 2009

    9:00 – 11:00 am

    Coffee and pastries from 8:30 am

    5th Floor Conference Room

    Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

    Author, Latinos and the Nation’s Future

    Executive Chairman, CityView


    President & CEO, ImmigrationWorks USA


    Director, US Justice Fund, Open Society Institute

    It is projected that by 2050, Latinos will make up 25 percent of the United States population. Panelists will examine the impact of this dynamic growth on the United States and the importance of developing integration policies that fully harness the potential of this burgeoning population. Please join us as Henry Cisneros, the first Hispanic mayor of a major U.S. city and former HUD Secretary, discusses his new book, Latinos and the Nation’s Future. He will outline strategies to develop the educational potential of the Hispanic population, engage its community-building energies, and transform it into the next middle class. Antonio Maciel will reflect upon barriers to opportunity and justice, discussing initiatives that advance the equal participation of marginalized groups in civil society. Tamar Jacoby, a contributor to the volume, will explore the role of immigration policy in setting the groundwork for a more cohesive and integrated society.
