Carlos Alvarez, is a local entrepreneur and first-generation immigrant from Guatemala who moved to Connecticut at 11 years old. From a young age, he had strong ambition and a mind for business, starting his first lawn-mowing business at 18. Now, he owns four companies in new home builders, landscape maintenance, landscape supply, and stone supply.
Tamu Lucero, Ph.D., is the Superintendent of Stamford Public Schools, where students and families speak more than 75 languages at home. During her 25-year career as a teacher and administrator, she has worked diligently to improve public education and sees the potential in every child. She believes education is a global initiative requiring an alliance among all communities to elicit effective and efficient reform.
David Dyssegaard Kallick, is the Director of Immigration Research Initiative, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization. He is the author of numerous studies of the economic and fiscal aspects of immigration at the national, state, metro area, and local levels, with a particular focus on the regions of New York State.
Muzaffar Chishti, is a Migration Policy Institute Senior Fellow and Director of the MPI office at New York University School of Law and will moderate our discussion. His work focuses on U.S. immigration policy at the federal, state, and local levels, including the intersection of labor and immigration law, immigration enforcement, civil liberties, and immigrant integration.
Thank you for joining this special event which served as an opportunity to discuss and revel in the power of our immigrant population as drivers of economic growth on a local and national scale. A recording of the program will be available soon.
We had a chance to connect with one another through our shared interest in advancing the successful integration of immigrants and their families as they make Connecticut their home.
