Please join the American Institute of Mediation for our Immigration Dialogue 2010, a unique and special event where we will discuss the immigration issue facing America today.  This discussion will be a facilitated dialogue held at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles on July 23rd from 3:30-5:30 pm and features Arizona legislators John Kavanagh (R) and Kyrsten Sinema (D).  Moderated by our President, mediator and talk show host Lee Jay Berman, this innovative event will take the form of a mediated discussion, rather than an interview or debate, between the lawmakers.  We will discuss the immigration issues facing our nation, and have some discussion about Arizona's controversial SB 1070, which is due to become law on July 28 of this year.

These two Arizona legislators, alongside their constituents, have lived with these immigration issues up close and personally and can articulate the issues as they are viewed by their respective groups.  In hosting this event, the American Institute of Mediation is hoping to commence a change in the way we all talk about the critical issues that face our society, and to become more collaborative and a little less competitive; to listen more and argue less; and to explain, describe and attempt to understand, rather than simply repeating sound bites and talking points.  We believe that solutions that are derived from people's interests are generally strong and long lasting, and we hope to demonstrate this by moving this discussion in that direction using the same skills that mediators use on a daily basis.

We invite you to join us for this AIM Institute Special Event. Only 200 tickets will be sold, so register now before it sells out. Advance registration is required, and parking is free.
