Rich André '09, Senior Policy Advisor for State and Local Initiatives at the American Immigration Council, will be speaking to students about his current and previous grassroots and policy immigration advocacy work at the New American Economy and New York City Mayor's Office of Immigration Affairs.

At Amherst, Rich studied Political Science and Spanish, followed by a Master's degree in Public Policy at Princeton. Rich advises state government officials on their immigration policies, including COVID-19 response and recovery efforts, Afghan refugee resettlement, and federal advocacy. He also has Haitian roots and thus employs a relentless commitment in his daily tasks to see comprehensive immigration reform come to fruition in the Biden Administration. Hear him speak about what is being done on a state, local, and federal level to secure national immigration reform.
