Think National, Act Local: States, Counties & Cities Take on Immigration Policy

Thu, October 29, 2015,
9:00am to 10:30am PDT

With federal inaction on immigration policy, states, counties, and cities across the country have stepped up, largely putting in place policies that support immigrant integration. Join this webinar hosted by Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees to learn about the latest trends in both pro- and anti-immigrant state and local policies. Discuss policies that are gaining traction in many jurisdictions—from driver’s licenses to municipal IDs. Examine anti-immigrant ballot measures in Oregon to understand the role of hate groups and implications for immigrant communities. And explore what philanthropy can do to support the expansion of pro-immigrant policies across the country. The webinar will feature an Oregon Case Study.
