*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.*
The Trump administration announced on September 5, that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will be terminated in March 2018, throwing the futures of nearly 800,000 immigrants into uncertainty. In its five years as policy, DACA allowed DACAmented immigrants to live free from the threat of deportation, step up as leaders and members of their communities, and pursue the American Dream. Join us for this timely briefing.
- How are DACAmented immigrants, as well as their supporters and allies, responding to this policy setback
- What legislative options and trade-offs are being contemplated
- What immediate and long-term needs and strategies should philanthropy prioritize
- Cristina Jimenez, Executive Director and Co-Founder, United We Dream
- Tom K. Wong, Associate Professor of Political Science, Immigration Politics and Policy, University of California, San Diego
- Ana Lisa Yoder, Principal and Founder, Yoder Consultancy
- Aryah Somers Landsberger(Moderator), Director of Programs, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees
