Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills will present a discussion on immigration with Mr. Ali Noorani as guest speaker. His topic will be “How Communities Overcome Prejudice and Meet the Challenge of American Immigration.”

This event is sponsored by the synagogue’s Solidarity Committee, which encourages everyone to join in the discussion in light of recent national events and changes regarding immigration. The talk is free of charge and is open to the entire community.

Ali Noorani is the Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum, an advocacy organization promoting the value of immigrants and immigration. Growing up in California as the son of Pakistani immigrants, Noorani quickly learned how to forge alliances among people of wide-ranging backgrounds, a skill that has served him extraordinarily well as one of the nation’s most innovative coalition builders.

Before joining the Forum, Mr. Noorani was Executive Director of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition, and he has served in leadership roles within public health and environmental organizations.

In 2015, Noorani was named a lifetime member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He holds a Master’s in Public Health from Boston University and is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. Noorani lives in Washington, D.C. and is the author of “There Goes the Neighborhood,” which delves into “what really drives America’s ongoing immigration debate?” (Prometheus, April 2017).
