Memphis Immigration Project Builds Support for Tuition Equality Bill 3/10

Memphis Immigration Project Builds Support for Tuition Equality Bill 3/10

The Memphis Immigration Project is hosting an event to raise awareness and support for the Tennessee Tuition Equality Bill. You’ll be able to hear from lawyers, non-profit, business and faith leaders from around the state share about the importance of the bill and the need for it to be passed. There will also be a student panel where attendees will be able to hear from students about the effect that the bill not passing has had on them.

 I believe as Tennesseans we need to show the country we are people who care for the future of all students, even immigrant students. This is what will make us a great state. – Rondell Treviño, Memphis Immigration Project Founder and Director

Randell believes support should come from the community and is vital for the bill to be passed. He believes people should come to better understand the bigger issues with immigration in America, to be able to put a face to the immigration conversation and to understand what the bible says about immigration.

Movements occur when people see an injustice in society, lock arms, and advocate for legislative change together.
– Rondell Treviño, Memphis Immigration Project Founder and Director

Rondell founded the Memphis Immigration Project in February. It is a grassroots organization that aims to restore the value of immigrants and put a face to the immigration conversation so that it leads to immigration reform.

My wife is an immigrant and that led to my passion for all other immigrants who are voiceless.
– Rondell Treviño, Memphis Immigration Project Founder and Director

  • Equipping on immigration from a Biblical perspective and the need for immigration reform.
  • Advocacy for legislative change. Example: The tuition equality bill
