2/22 Free Webinar by @ImmAdvocates: Responses to Enforcement – Advocacy Activities for Organizations on the Ground
This webinar will focus on administrative advocacy for individuals and organizations assisting immigrant communities facing increased enforcement activities and other immigration challenges. This webinar will address various forms of advocacy; the sometimes slight differences between lobbying and other forms of advocacy, which are unlimited for 501(c)(3) organizations; and tools enabling successful advocacy efforts. The webinar will encourage the collaboration of immigrants’ rights organizations with criminal justice and other allies to combat aggressive detention and enforcement practices and discuss examples of issues where administrative advocacy has been an effective tool. The webinar will feature materials created by the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) and Alliance for Justice.
The panelists for this webinar will be
- Nayantara Mehta, Senior Counsel with Alliance for Justice
- Allison Posner, CLINIC’s Director of Advocacy.
- IAN Director Natalie Sullivan will serve as the moderator.
This webinar is made possible through the support of the Four Freedoms Fund.
