*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.*

Don’t miss GCIR’s first post-summer Monthly Immigration Policy Call, during which we will take stock of key immigration-related developments and explore questions that funders should be considering right now and in the year ahead. An extraordinary number of major immigration policy battles are underway in the courts and beyond. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals remains in legal limbo. Dozens of parents and children forcibly separated at the border have yet to be reunited. Refugee admissions are at historic lows. And a new set of ‘public charge’ policies barring immigrants who have received basic government support from permanent residency is expected any day. While federal policy wins remain elusive, gains at the state and local level hold promise for advancing equity, improving public safety, promoting greater social cohesion, and providing a blueprint for longer-term movement building.

  • The topmost federal policy threats and potential implications for immigrant families and communities across the country
  • The remarkably broad set of pro-immigrant victories at the state and local levels over the past two years—and what lessons they hold for future efforts
  • What funders can do to support immigrants and refugees, while building strong communities for all
