Join us for a CLE Webinar
Confronting Anti-Blackness Against Immigrant Survivors in Civil Legal Systems
Thursday, November 9, 2023, from 2-4pm ET
(1-3pm CT/12-2pm MT/11am-1pm PT/8-10am HT)
Anti-Blackness is embedded in America’s civil legal systems, including immigration, child welfare, juvenile justice, and public benefits. This interactive webinar, appropriate for all levels, will examine the anti-Blackness faced by immigrant survivors in these systems. Through the presentation of case scenarios, presenters will explore the damaging intersection of anti-Blackness in civil legal systems and the discretionary nature of many forms of survivor-based immigration relief. Practitioners will leave the webinar with practical tips for confronting anti-Blackness and helping Black immigrant survivors obtain survivor-based immigration relief in the face of systemic racism.
