World Relief and the Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC) co-hosted an exciting conference entitled “Building Legal Immigration Services Capacity Through National Networks and their Affiliates” at the World Relief home office in Baltimore on April 3 and 4, 2013.
The conference was aimed at national immigration networks and discussed how to prepare for immigration reform and its implementation. The conference was held at a critical time point, considering that the Senate “Gang of 8” introduced an immigration reform bill on April 17. Over forty participants attended, representing twenty national organizations and three local organizations.
The sessions of the conference focused on increasing capacity within networks to serve a greater number of immigrants, as well as preparing networks for implementation of immigration reform.
