Raquel Castaneda-Lopez, City Councilwoman of Detroit District 6, came to our Adult Learning Lab on Wednesday to speak about the City of Detroit Immigration Taskforce, which Raquel founded with Council Member André Spivey last year. The Immigration Task Force advocates on behalf of immigrant communities and for a diverse city that is welcoming of immigrants and respects their vital role in Detroit’s future and vibrancy. Raquel’s District includes southwest Detroit — often recognized as one of the most diverse areas in the state. Participants at our Learning Lab, which provides GED and ESL programs, certainly benefited from Raquel’s expertise on immigration matters, and she encouraged them to achieve their educational and vocational aspirations.
