Earlier this year, GCIR released our 2023 Public Policy Agenda, a set of federal and state reforms that would advance immigrant justice and power across the country. From calling for pathways to naturalization for Afghan arrivals and DACA holders to opposing policies that increase immigrant detention, GCIR stands with community leaders and coalitions leading the charge on these critical issues. In this learning session, we will dive into three top priority issues for immigrant justice advocates:
- 287(g): a program that empowers local law enforcement to act as ICE agents.
- The “Asylum Ban”: President Biden’s new proposal limiting access to asylum.
- Prison transfers: the practice of state and local prisons in California transferring individuals to ICE custody.
GCIR and members of our network recently advocated on several of these issues in Washington, D.C. as part of Foundations on the Hill.
Join this webinar to learn more about these issues directly from campaign leaders and to explore steps funders can take to support their efforts.
