After successfully hosting a roundtable discussion about Google's impacts on the city, the human relations commission will host its second such talk next week, and the subject is undocumented workers in Mountain View.
On Thursday, March 22, Mountain View residents are asked to join an "active demonstration of civility" with five speakers, including Jose Antonio Vargas, the former Mountain View High School Student and Pulitzer-prize winner who revealed his story of being an undocumented immigrant in The New York Times magazine. The discussion will also be led by Maria Marroquin, director of the Mountain View Day Worker Center, Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen, Mountain View Chamber of Commerce CEO Oscar Garcia and Dan Barich, former Congressional candidate and Tea Party member.
If the event goes as the previous one did, the five speakers will sit in a circle and discus the topic for an hour and then break out into groups with residents for further discussion.
Organizers hope to have an interesting discussion about a divisive national issue, and say they couldn't have put together a better group of participants.
The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Mountain View Senior center, 266 Escuela Avenue.
