    On October 3rd, 1965, President Lyndon Baines Johnson signed the Immigration Act of 1965 into law. Widely viewed as a component of the Civil Rights Movement, the 1965 Act liberalized immigration and replaced the last eugenics-inspired portions of the Immigration Act of 1924. For the first time in generations, immigrants from Western Europe were not given legal preference over those from Asia and the rest of the developing world.

    This special conference, commemorating the passage of this landmark law 50 years ago, will bring together leading researchers, journalists, and policymakers to examine the effects of the law’s legal reforms and how they can help guide Americans in reforming our immigration system today. Major topics that will be covered include:

    • How the Immigration Act of 1965 affected the demographics and economy of the United States
    • Lessons learned from the 1965 Act since its implementation
    • How these lessons inform discussions of immigration reform in the 21st century

    Please join our distinguished speakers on Friday, October 2, to discuss these and related issues.
