*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.*
From the Lone Star State to the White House, the month of May has seen several policy changes that will have a negative impact on immigrant communities and communities of color across the country. In Texas, the governor signed into law a bill that bans sanctuary cities and enables all law enforcement officers to enforce federal immigration law. In Washington, the president established a Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity to investigate voter-fraud claims and appointed a prominent anti-immigration activist Kris Kobach as vice chair. And on May 23, the administration faces a deadline on whether to extend temporary protected status for 50,000 Haitians or whether to deport them. Join our upcoming call to learn about these policy developments.
Due to the urgent and far-reaching nature of this week's policy developments, GCIR postponed the originally planned discussion, Trauma and Resilience: Supporting Immigrant Children, their Families, and Our Communities through Collaboration, until June 15, 2017.
