8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.: Convening, FHI 360 Conference Center

How do we create an immigration system that both protects our families and benefits our economy? How can we ensure that America and American workers continue to benefit from immigration, and that immigrants themselves become fully integrated into our society? To answer these questions and more, we have invited a diverse group of leaders to participate in a series of thought-provoking keynotes and plenaries. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dr. Doug Holtz-Eakin, President, American Action Forum
  • Mayor Betsy Price, Fort Worth, Texas
  • Dr. Russell Moore, President, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission
  • Sheriff Margaret Mims, Fresno, California

2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.: Meetings with Congressional Offices, Capitol Hill

Following the convening, pre-registered participants will meet with congressional offices on Capitol Hill to discuss immigration-related topics. All meeting participants are required to participate in a preparatory information session held via webinar in the days preceding and a post-meeting session to be scheduled. If needed, the Forum can provide assistance setting up meetings.

6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.: Reception, 101 Constitution Avenue Roof Terrace

The day concludes with an evening reception and the presentation of the Keepers of the American Dream awards. Our 2018 honorees will be announced shortly. Reception only tickets are available for purchase.


The Forum has reserved a room block at a Washington, DC hotel. More information will be provided upon registration.
