Welcome Plenary

Executive Director Anna Marie Gallagher will open CLINIC’s 23rd annual Convening with reflections on the “hunger” that drives people to seek out opportunity and possibility, and the role of welcoming nations and communities. Ur Mendoza Jaddou, Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, will present a keynote address and then sit with Gallagher for a virtual “fireside chat.” Gallagher is the daughter of Irish immigrants. Jaddou is the daughter of Mexican and Iraqi immigrants, and the first woman to head USCIS.
