The League of Women Voters of East Multnomah County will continue its study of U.S. immigration policy at its monthly Public Information Meeting at noon Tuesday, Jan. 8, at the MetroEast Community Television Studios, 289 East 8th St., Gresham.
The program will feature Jim Ludwick, President of Oregonians for Immigration Reform. Ludwick, a co-founder of OFIR, has led the group to prepare a state initiative, 'Respect for Law,' that has been approved by Oregon's Secretary of State for gathering signatures. OFIR will begin to gather signatures Jan. 4; by July of 2008, 83,000 signatures are needed to qualify the initiative for the November 2008 ballot.
Jim Ludwick has lived on a small farm/woodlot in Yamhill County since 1972. Oregonians for Immigration Reform has demonstrated and lobbied both at the state and federal level.
The public is invited. The program begins at noon; bring a lunch; coffee, tea and cookie are provided. For more information, call 503-667-7036.
