Representatives of the nonprofit and education community gathered at Marymount University’s Reston Center on May 9 to learn more about federal and state proposals for immigration reform, better known as the DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act.
Dominique Poirier, staff attorney at Just Neighbors Legal Services of Northern Virginia, presented a history of the legislation and the current proposed changes in Congress and at the state-level. The presentation drew an audience from several Fairfax County-based nonprofits and the Fairfax County Public School System.
The event was the latest installment in the Reston Center’s continuing Thought Leader Series focusing on issues relevant to the academic programs available at the center. The Reston Center offers graduate programs in Education and Nonprofit Management.
