BU Book Discussion: There Goes the Neighborhood: How Communities Overcome Prejudice and Meet the Challenge of American Immigration

Speaker: Ali Noorani (BUSPH ‘99)

Executive Director, National Immigration Forum

This compelling approach to the immigration debate takes the reader behind the blaring headlines and into communities grappling with the reality of new immigrants and the changing nature of American identity. Ali Noorani, the executive director of the National Immigration Forum and an alumnus of Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH), interviews nearly 50 local and national leaders from law enforcement, business, immigrant, and faith communities to illustrate the challenges and opportunities they face. From high school principals to church pastors to sheriffs, the author reveals that most people are working to advance society’s interests, not exploiting a crisis at the expense of one community. As he shows, some cities and regions have reached a happy conclusion, while others struggle to find balance.
