Beyond Politics: A Bipartisan Summit on Immigration Reform

The IMPAC Fund strives to be a catalyst of change. Our goal is to affect change by developing and deepening the sense of accountability among industry leaders, community leaders and elected officials around immigration in the United States and migrating them towards a pro-immigrant stance through bipartisan leadership.

The summit, hosted by the University of Miami, seeks to create and drive dialogue that promotes deeper ties and fosters support mechanisms between the business sector and immigrant communities. These communities are the engines of growth, innovation, entrepreneurship and new ventures that will keep the U.S. economy thriving.

Miami is an immigrant town, but our national leadership has failed us on the whole question of immigration. Our efforts look to boost that missing middle between thinking about a change initiative on immigration and actually achieving a desirable humane outcome for thousands of law-abiding immigrants.

This summit will be a step in that direction.

Notable guest speakers and panelists include: former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Voto Latino President & CEO Maria Teresa Kumar, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and immigration activist Jose Antonio Vargas, Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, Republican Strategist and CNN Commentator Ana Navarro, Congressman Carlos Curbelo, Congressman Ted Deutch, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, Americans for Immigrant Justice Executive Director Cheryl Little, University of Miami President Dr. Julio Frenk, DREAMers RoadMap Founder Sarahi Espinoza Salamanca, and many more.
