Each year the Salem State Commonwealth Honors Program invites member students to come together for the High Table Dinner, a meal and discussion with an invited speaker whose interests may align with their own.
This year’s speaker is José Palma, an immigration activist that received national attention last year when he spoke before Congress as the Coordinator of the National TPS Alliance. The temporary protected status (TPS) of nearly 330,000 people from countries such as El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Haiti was arbitrarily threatened at the start of the current administration, and through the efforts of his organization TPS holders have received an extension allowing them to stay in our country—but only for another year. His fight continues.
Please join us for a meal and a discussion where you can learn more about the TPS movement, immigration issues facing our nation, and the power of community organizing.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 21st. Limited spots may be available. The event will be held in the Ellison Campus Center Underground Room.
