As a group, immigrants who are women face challenges that are often overlooked in public discourse surrounding other immigration concerns. Women often find themselves at the intersection of matters related to work, immigration status, family, and gender, affected by each of these in ways that are often ignored in the policy arena. To ensure that women's concerns are included in conversations regarding immigration, we need to know how current discourse and public opinion treat immigrant women, and how we can leverage existing opportunities, improve coverage, and shape discussions. During this telebriefing speakers will present research and recommendations that pertain to public opinion and media coverage of immigrant women. There will be time for questions from the audience. Speakers include:

  • Sienna Baskin, Urban Justice Center
  • Michelle BranĂ©, Women's Refugee Commission
  • Julie Rowe, The Opportunity Agenda
  • Loren Siegel, Loren Siegel Consulting
  • Juhu Thukral, The Opportunity Agenda
