*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.*
As a New Year dawns, immigration policy continues to dominate the national conversation. A partial government shutdown has stretched on for nearly three weeks over President Trump’s demand for funding for his signature campaign pledge: a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. The past year saw a wide range of funders take action against policies and practices harmful to immigrants and refugees, from families being forcibly separated at the border to the proposed radical overhaul of the public charge rule. Can we expect more harmful immigration policies in 2019? How can philanthropy push forward and build upon last year’s successes for the benefit of everyone in their communities?
Join us and our panel of experts to unpack these questions!
- How the new congress will impact environmental policies
- The challenges that immigrant and refugee communities face in regards to their legal protections and economic security
- Wendy Cervantes, Senior Policy Analyst, Immigration and Immigrant Families, CLASP
Pedro Rios, San Diego Program Director, American Friends Service Committee
