George Kanuck, Lowcountry Immigration Coalition

George Kanuck will discuss the past and current status of the immigrant community in the nation, state, and local area. Upon his move to the Lowcountry, George became interested in acting as a Social Justice Advocate on behalf of the local immigrant community.  In 2010, he teamed with Eric Esquivel, a long time Hilton Head resident and publisher of the bilingual La Isla Magazine to form the Lowcountry Immigration Coalition.   Eric and George aimed to educate, inform, communicate, and advocate for the Latino population which serves as a significant economic engine in our Beaufort County area. The Coalition has had some successes in opposing State anti-immigrant legislation and supporting the community, but the fight has been uphill.  The biggest task is for the passage of national legislation in the form of Comprehensive Immigration Reform in the future.
