We are happy to announce we will be hosting a free training for service providers who are interested in learning more about how you can help the immigrants in your community. The 3.5 hour training will discuss several immigration issues, including immigration status, work permits, unaccompanied youth, detention and deportation, and deferred action. This training is aimed at social service providers and people working closely with the immigrant community, and will be conducted in English. It is not a legal training, and Continuing Legal Education credits will not be offered. For immigrant community members, please see our “Know Your Rights” presentations that are geared towards helping answer your questions. Read more here.
