GRAMMY®-award winning recording artist and Latin music legend Luis Enrique will share his personal story of triumph at CHCI’s Public Policy Conference while participating in a dynamic panel discussion on Immigration Reform and the DREAM Act.  This session will be held on Monday, September 12, from 3:00-4:30 p.m. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

Born in Nicaragua, Luis Enrique immigrated to the United States in 1978.  During the session, he will share his compelling immigrant story, including his struggle to achieve the American dream.  His participation in the panel will add a very personal aspect to this timely session.

The Plenary Session—Keeping the Promise: Immigration Reform and the DREAM Act – A Call to Action—will be moderated by Telemundo Anchor Jose Diaz-Balart, and feature Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez, the nation’s leading voice for immigration reform.  Also joining the panel is Rev. Jim Tolle of the El Camino Church in Van Nuys, California, who works with Conservatives for Comprehensive Immigration Reform, an effort by conservative leaders and organizations across America to advance the cause of just immigration reform. 

Register to attend this powerful and relevant session, which will bring together diverse voices in favor of immigration reform and the DREAM Act as a way to support America’s progress toward an education goal of 60% college graduation rate.
