Inclusive Reed Series Community Conversation: Sanctuary and Citizenship

Why Issues Around Immigration Affect All of Us

This community conversation will explore current issues in immigration law by asking: What does it mean to be a sanctuary campus/location/city? Why is immigration in America an issue for every citizen? And what does the climate toward immigrants mean for our core political values?

Radhika Natarajan, assistant professor of history and humanities, is a historian of Modern Imperial Britain with particular interests in ethnicity, migration, decolonization, social democracy, and multiculturalism. Radhika will moderate a Q&A with Chirag Badlani and facilitate a community conversation around these important issues.

Chirag Badlani, J.D., is a member of Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym, Ltd. He represents clients in a wide variety of civil matters, with a focus in the areas of civil rights, constitutional law, labor and employment, commercial litigation, and asylum and refugee matters. Mr. Badlani received his B.A. from Yale College and his J.D. from New York University School of Law.
