*This program is hosted by our partner, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), who has extended an invitation to PNY members. Space is limited and will be granted on a first come, first served basis.*
In honor of Black History Month, this month’s policy call will celebrate the diversity and strength of the black immigrant community in the U.S., as well as delve deeper into the experience of black immigrants, refugees, and asylumseekers. We will explore current challenges black immigrants are facing, ranging from the termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS), access to asylum, engagement on census, to ongoing efforts to build intersectional organizing networks. Please join us for a dynamic conversation moderated by Carl Lipscombe, Deputy Director of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, to explore these issues and bring your questions!
