Dr. Gonzalez-Murphy to Present NYS Immigration Policies and Programs

Dr. Laura Valeria Gonzalez-Murphy is the Director of NYS Office of New Americans.  She will be a featured luncheon speaker on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, at 12:00 during the 26th Annual Conference on the Adirondacks.  Dr. Gonzalez-Murphy will present efforts to design and launch sustainable initiatives in response to fluctuating immigration flows, during times of relative receptiveness to immigrants, and during periods of highly restrictive national policies.  The last two years have entailed formidable challenges for immigrants in New York State, particularly in the upstate areas, where services are limited.  Dr. Gonzalez-Murphy will discuss these challenges and programs available in the region.
