This past September, the Trump Administration announced the termination of the
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, with all benefits to be revoked by March 2018. DACA provided nearly 800,000 immigrants with the opportunity to live, work, and thrive in their communities without fear of deportation. DACA's cancellation will deeply disrupt the lives of the DACAmented immigrants and their families and reaches into many diverse communities.
Black, Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) and LGBTQ immigrants are among the least-visible DACAmented individuals, and often lack both access to services and community support.
Join us for this webinar on
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 28 at 1P/12C

- Understand immediate and long term needs, challenges, and opportunities related to diverse DACAmented individuals and their families; and
