Community Outreach and Advocacy Workshops

Do you have a case that is stuck with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services? Do you have a client who whose civil rights were violated? Join CLINIC’s Advocacy team alongside representatives from DHS’ CIS Ombudsman Office and Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties for an interactive session on the services they offer. Participants will leave this workshop with tangible tools on how to seek assistance with issues and resources for your program.

Join agency officials and CLINIC’s advocacy team to learn about updates on case processing tools and procedures. This session will share tips for preparing your case, discuss how to counsel clients on timing and expectations, and how to tackle problem cases. This session will also cover case advocacy resources available to you as a CLINIC affiliate.

This panel will explore current events in immigration law and policy, illuminating the administration’s core goals and strategies in reducing immigration and immigrant integration. Topics will include DACA/TPS, the administration’s regulatory agenda, denaturalization efforts, family separation and more. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of key topics and a sharper eye to spot patterns that lead to a stronger collective voice of opposition.
