*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.*

Immigrants fill essential roles at every level of the U.S. economy, from corporate suites to construction sites. While concentrated in low-wage sectors, newcomers—particularly those without legal status—have been indispensable to the success of major industries, including agriculture, hospitality, and food service. Despite immigrants’ significant contributions, the current administration has signed executive orders and put in place policies and procedures that have not only disrupted the lives of these laborers and their families but threaten to uproot them entirely from their homes and communities. 

Join us for a discussion co-sponsored by our partners around these timely policy issues affecting immigrants – and hear how it is particularly relevant or pressing for philanthropy. At the beginning of the call, Kerri Talbot, Partner at The VENG Group, will also provide a general policy update.

  • The impact of the administration’s policies on low-wage immigrant workers
  • The role of employers, labor unions, and community-based groups, such as worker centers, in helping to protect low-wage immigrant workers' basic rights
