Immigration Project

Building on Notre Dame’s long-standing commitment to a faith that does justice, as well as the significance of immigration in Latino communities, the Immigration Initiative seeks to highlight the Church’s commitment to immigrants and immigration reform in the United States. The primary activities of the project are a national conference, March 2-5 2014, and video production that critically engage the issue of immigration in the United States, especially in light of what the Church has done, is doing, and can do in the future. This initiative is being done in collaboration with other campus units including the Office of the President, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, and the Institute for Educational Initiatives.
