New York City has always prided itself on being a city of immigrants. As federal immigration policy and practice undergo dramatic shifts, the City has labeled itself a safe haven for immigrants. The resulting tensions are evident in and around our public schools.

Philanthropy New York’s Education Working Group- in collaboration with the Donors’ Education Collaborative, the NYC Youth Funders, and the Fund for New Citizens- invites you to examine the current policies and practices that are most critical to New York City’s immigrant students and their families. The panel of school, government, advocacy, and philanthropic leaders will also discuss the legal, mental health, and instructional support our immigrant students need right now. Panelists will also lay out what policies and practices are working well, which ones need to be strengthened, and whether new ones should be created. 

  • An overview of the most critical policies and supports for immigrant students at the city- and school-levels
  • The legal rights and protections for immigrant students outside of/around schools
  • The mental health and social emotional supports for immigrant students in and through schools
  • Policing/ICE presence in schools and its relation to deportation


Designed for

All interested funders.
