WAUSAU — Central Wisconsin residents can relate to immigration issues — from the Hmong refugee resettlements of the 1980s to today’s Hispanic immigrants who are the backbone of our dairy industry. In Part II of a three-part series, the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service continues the dialogue – exploring how the area is impacted by immigration.
“How Immigration Impacts Central Wisconsin” will be held at 7 p.m. March 10 at the UW Center for Civic Engagement, 625 Stewart Ave., Wausau.
Rob Ferrett, host of Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Central Time” program will moderate the discussion and a panel of local community members representing schools, businesses, health care, social services and minorities, will lead the discussion. Audience members can weigh in with feedback following the moderated session.
