On February 8, Council Member Jumaane D. Williams, Senator Kevin S. Parker, Assembly Member Rodneyse Bichotte and District Leader Josue Pierre will host "State of Immigration: State of Emergency," an immigration forum where attendees will learn about immigration policy changes under President Donald J. Trump and how to prepare. The event will take place at the Flatbush YMCA, from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

The goal of the forum is to energize people to take action, organize and learn how to survive during the next four years. The following topics will be discussed:

  • Citizenship Family Based Petitions
  • Immigration Fraud and Family Reunification
  • DACA/DAPA Asylum Filing
  • Fee Changes
  • Temporary Protected Status (TPS)
  • Deportation

There'll be a panel discussion, as well as,  representatives from City agencies and local organizations to answer questions about immigrant rights and answers to any questions regarding changes to the country's immigration policies.  

The Flatbush YMCA is located at 1401 Flatbush Avenue and is accessible by public transportation by taking the B41, to Flatbush Avenue and Rogers Avenue. For times, visit MTA Trip Planner.
