Julianna Kerr
Director of Immigration Initiative, Chicago Council on Global Affairs

The Midwest has significantly different needs on immigration reform than elsewhere. Unlike most of the rest of the country, the Midwest is losing people -400,000 between 2010 and 2012. Juliana Kerr makes the case that without immigrants, the Midwest won't create as many jobs needed to grow the economy and will continue to lose political representation in Congress, because of its declining population.

Juliana Kerr joined The Chicago Council on Global Affairs in 2002 and is currently the director of the immigration initiative, where she manages the Council’s publications, research, partnerships, and programming on immigration and immigrant contributions to the regional economy. She also oversees Global Chicago activities and the Gus Hart Visiting Fellowship.

The presentation will be held in The Lowell Center, 610 Langdon Street, Rooms B1A and B1B.
