Immigration Enforcement Preparedness for Nonprofits
Thursday, November 02, 2017 9:00 am
In-person | New York, NY
The current administration has launched a marked and terrifying increase in aggressive immigration enforcement causing nonprofits and service providers to question how to continue effective operations and ensure that their immigrant clients have access to their services.
New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI), pro bono partners Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, and community partners, authored and released a special Guidance to Nonprofits Regarding Immigration Enforcement aimed at supporting the nonprofit community in protecting our most at-risk clients in the face of this new reality. NYLPI and Human Services Council are hosting a free legal training for nonprofit leaders on immigration enforcement.
Our expert panel of attorneys, nonprofit, and social service leaders will review legal questions and scenarios, discuss practical considerations for implementing this guidance, and provide valuable insight on best practices. This training is perfect for nonprofit executive directors, leaders, general counsels or others tasked with setting policy within their organizations.
