Edison State To Host Immigration Conference

FORT MYERS  -- Grupo Salinas and Azteca America through its non-profit arm Fundacion Azteca America will present, in conjunction with Edison State College, a groundbreaking conference on immigration entitled "State of Latinos: Immigration – I Too Am America," to be held at the Lee Campus of Edison State College in Ft. Myers, FL on October 21.
The conference will include the presentation of a white paper on immigration written by the University of Denver Latino Center For Community Engagement and Scholarship, an overview of the immigration issue in Florida, an examination of religious and cultural trends related to immigration, and the topic of activism and community empowerment as it relates to the Latino community. The event will also include a talk on government approaches and political realities of the immigration issue.

Participants include:

Congressmember Mario Diaz-Balart
Cristobal Czaia, Czaia & Gallagher
James Martin, Weyergraf & Martin
Lisa Martinez, University of Denver
Pastor Robert Selle, Amigos Center
Armando Guzman, Azteca America
Mayela Rosales, Azteca America Southwest Florida

"State of Latinos: Truth in Immigration" is a one of several initiatives supported by Fundacion Azteca America to foment dialog regarding comprehensive immigration reform.

Fundacion Azteca America supported a conference last month at Arizona State University on the topic of immigration. Earlier this year it presented a white paper prepared by the University of Denver on immigration at Georgetown University. It has also produced a multi-media informational campaign that includes public service announcements aired on Azteca America, a web-based campaign on www.fundacionaztecaamerica.org and printed material that has been distributed by Azteca America affiliated stations in 69 cities throughout the country. The theme of the campaign is "I too am America," emphasizing the important role that immigrants have played in the development of the United States throughout history.

"Our concern at Fundacion Azteca America is an increasing intolerant environment for immigrants, especially Latino immigrants," said Luis J. Echarte, Chairman of Azteca America. "The most powerful tool to counteract this intolerance is education."

Fundacion Azteca America would like to express its gratitude to all participating entities for their support of this conference, including Edison State College, Azteca America Miami, Azteca America Southwest Florida, WWHB West Palm Beach and Azteca America Fort Myers.
