    Featured Topics for February's Public Policy Meeting:  

    Governor Whitmer's FY 2020 Budget  - This month we will be joined by Poppy Hernandez, the Community Affairs and Regional Director for West Michigan for the office of Governor Gretchen Whitmer. She will be covering the Governor's 2020 FY Budget. 

    Immigration Law & Policy Updates - Over the last three years, Immigration Law & Policy have changed rapidly and, often, with very little warning. The changes have not been positive for those in our community seeking to regularize their immigration status. For many in West Michigan, the current immigration system has had devastating impacts on their lives and their families. Sarah Yore-Van Oosterhout, Founder and Managing Attorney of Lighthouse Immigrant Advocates, will highlight important shifts in Immigration Law & Policy and share how those changes have impacted West Michigan immigrant communities.
