In honor of Black History Month, this month’s policy call will celebrate the diversity and strength of the black immigrant community in the U.S., as well as delve deeper into the experience of black immigrants, refugees, and asylumseekers. We will explore current challenges black immigrants are facing, ranging from the termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS), access to asylum, engagement on census, to ongoing efforts to build intersectional organizing networks. Please join us for a dynamic conversation moderated by Carl Lipscombe, Deputy Director of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, to explore these issues and bring your questions!
Calls are open to GCIR members, other grantmaking institutions, philanthropic advisors, and members and staff of funder affinity groups and regional associations of grantmakers. (Participation is limited to organizations that share GCIR’s core values.)
Please register by COB Wednesday, February 20th.
