Description

The headlines feature immigrants almost daily—from Afghanistan, Haiti, Central America, and other parts of the world. While immigration policy is made at the federal level, states and local municipalities can have great impact on the daily lives of immigrant residents. California, for example, has chosen to be welcoming to the state’s 11 million immigrants. Leaders at all levels of government have made targeted investments and have enacted inclusive policies that benefit the state as a whole. California has also partnered with philanthropy to expand services for immigrants. As the Biden administration and Congress debate legalization and other immigration policies, investments in immigration legal services can set California’s residents up for success.

Join the Institute for Local Government and GCIR for this special session. Drawing on demographic information and the findings from a recent research project, panelists will discuss key legal service needs in the state and explore how government and philanthropic investments can support community members working toward stabilizing their immigration status.
