Public Speeches and Appearances by FAIR
As immigration has emerged as one of the leading public policy issues facing the United States, the breadth of academic, civic, political, religious and other institutions holding forums and seeking speakers on the subject has increased dramatically. All across the country, these prominent institutions have sought representatives from FAIR to discuss the issues and offer meaningful solutions.
Since the beginning of 2007, FAIR representatives have been invited to speak at over 37 conferences. A sampling of the prominent universities at which FAIR has spoken or debated include Rutgers University, Emory University, Seton Hall University School of Law, DePaul University, International Visitors Program - U.S. Department of State, American University, New York University School of Law, and University Autonoma de Tamaulipas in Mexico.
Time permitting, FAIR accepts invitations to present its views on immigration policy to civic organizations around the country. Among the groups that FAIR has spoken to in the past year include the Constitutional Rights Foundation, League of Women Voters, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, National Center for Public Policy, Rotary Club, and the American Legion.
FAIR is frequently invited to present the moral and ethical case for immigration reform to religious institutions of most of the major faiths in this country. Some recent appearances include the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, Catholic Citizens of Illinois, and the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County.
Immigration policies and labor issues are becoming increasingly important to business and professional organizations and associations. FAIR's recent speaking engagements include the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, American Association of Newspaper Editors, Society of Professional Journalists, Maryland Bar Association, and the Texas Association of Business.
