Immigrant and refugee children and families across Washington state — both newcomers and longtime residents —are afraid and are experiencing the direct impact of new federal immigration policies. This has created a domino effect as nonprofits are facing skyrocketing calls for assistance and services. With an expansion of detention, deportation and priorities for enforcement, limits on refugee admissions, attempts to create a travel ban, and more, the stakes have never been higher for Washington communities. Organizations throughout the state have been working on rapid responses with a diverse range of stakeholders in the face of critical needs in the community. Philanthropy is at a critical juncture as it considers the impact on communities it supports and funding strategies moving forward.
Join this webinar hosted by Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) to learn about the latest trends in both pro- and anti-immigrant state and local policies.
