*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.*
While the last four years have been devastating for immigrant, refugee, and asylum seeker communities, the transition to a new administration in 2021 will not automatically result in bold new immigration reform or even a comprehensive unwinding of the hundreds of policy attacks perpetrated by the Trump administration. While President-Elect Biden has committed to undoing some of the most egregious Trump-era actions such as the Muslim Ban, the public charge policy change, and termination of DACA, immigrant rights advocates and providers have a much broader policy and infrastructure agenda for supporting the community. Movement leaders are eager to pivot from crisis response to advancing a welcoming and inclusive vision for the nation. At the same time, they recognize they will be operating in an environment of competing priorities and with an advocate and provider community increasingly burdened by fatigue.
