Immigration Reform Interviews – A social worker and religious leader share their views

August 21, 2009

These interviews are part of a series that we will be posting with people from West Michigan who are working to push for a new immigration policy from the federal government. The West Michigan Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform is working with the national group Reform Immigration For America (RIFA) to hold the new administration to its promise to reform immigration policy. You can join the local group by becoming a member on Facebook or contact Diane at  

The first interview is with Jerry Dykstra, who is the Executive Director of the Christian Reformed Church in North America. The other interview is with Kathy Siegenthaler who is an Infant Health Therapist with a local social service agency.

    These are fine videos, but I’m not really sure what they have to do with GRIID’s media literacy and media monitoring work.

    Jan, thanks for the comment. In addition to doing media literacy and media monitoring work we also support independent voices in the community and creating independent media. Since the commercial media often fails the public in providing diverse voices and perspectives, we feel it is important to fill that role.
