A 2021 poll from the Cato Institute shows 72 percent of respondents consider immigration to be good for the nation. Yet, many people continue to have complicated and conflicting opinions on the issue, often based on a lack of understanding of how the immigration system operates and exacerbated by disinformation campaigns. Research helps identify what inspires people to act, while cultural interventions and organizing affect perceptions and how we relate to one another. In this webinar, we will explore the strategies and tactics organizations are deploying to move hearts and minds in support of immigration.
