There’s been a lot of news lately out of Washington D.C. regarding immigrants, but did you know in Michigan there’s an aggressive effort underway to make Michigan an immigrant-friendly state? On this month’s Prosperity Agenda Radio show on News/Talk 760 WJR we discuss what Michigan is doing to become one of the nation’s most immigrant-friendly states and how new state policies have the potential to bring new jobs and opportunity to the Great Lakes State. My co-host for this month is Mary Kramer, publisher of Crain’s Detroit Business, and our guests are Bing Goei, a Grand Rapids community leader, entrepreneur and immigrant who was appointed director of Gov. Rick Snyder’s Office for New Americans in January 2014; Scott Woosley, executive director of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA); and Steve Tobocman, a leader of the Global Detroit effort. The Michigan Prosperity Agenda is a monthly radio show that challenges listeners to help make Michigan a better place to live, work and play by creating vibrant and prosperous local communities. It has aired on News/Talk 760 WJR since 2010. The show airs 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 25, on News/Talk 760 WJR, but you can listen anytime at the League’s website or by subscribing to the FREE iTunes podcast. Learn more about the placemaking concept here as well as on this blog.
