“What Happens When Police Help with Immigration Enforcement?” Community Conversation
March 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Dr. Nik Theodore, who recently completed a study on police involvement in immigration enforcement, will join Salem Police Chief Mary Butler in a discussion about the consequences of this law enforcement partnership.
Dr. Theodore will present results from a 2013 study in which researchers surveyed 2,000 Latinos in four cities regarding their perceptions of police and public safety, given instances of police involvement in immigration enforcement.
Community Conversations are free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended. If you have questions about this event, please contact Ana Nuncio at anuncio@7Gables.org or call 978-744-0991, ext. 105.
The primary goal of The Gables in hosting these dialogues is to encourage all residents and civic leaders of Salem and surrounding communities to listen, learn, and share their thoughts on immigration and immigration reform. The immigration conversations serve as an educational tool to explore some deeply entrenched perceptions and misperceptions that new immigrants and the descendants of earlier generations of immigrants have about each other — and sometimes about themselves and their own heritage.
