Description

The Trump administration announced on September 5, that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will be terminated in March 2018, throwing the futures of nearly 800,000 immigrants into uncertainty. In its five years as policy, DACA allowed DACAmented immigrants to live free from the threat of deportation, step up as leaders and members of their communities, and pursue the American Dream. How are DACAmented immigrants, as well as their supporters and allies, responding to this policy setback? What legislative options and trade-offs are being contemplated? What immediate and long-term needs and strategies should philanthropy prioritize? Join us for this timely briefing.
