This webinar is for educators, counselors, and others working in schools and adult education programs who want to learn more about immigration relief for undocumented students and their families. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for the Parents of U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) programs protect undocumented students and parents from deportation so that they can work legally and pursue their educational goals.
This webinar focuses on immigration issues and describes how other areas of social justice such as safety net programs, education, and transportation can include an immigration component. Other topics include gathering community stories and working with other advocates, elected officials, and policymakers. This presentation also highlights the importance of respectful discourse during advocacy work.

Learn how offering tax assistance preparation services promotes immigrant integration within your agency and community.
