Protecting Students and their Families from the Threat of Deportation

Session Type(s): Training

Training Tag(s): Movement Health & Operations

More than 750,000 individuals adjusted their immigration status through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The AFT and its partners across the country are on the frontlines fighting to keep families and communities together while President Trump keeps his campaign promise targeting undocumented and refugee immigrants. Join us for a candid conversation about immigration and ICE raids. Learn about the tools and resources available to community members, allies, and schools to help undocumented students prepare and fight back against the attacks and defend DACA.

This training is for all audiences.
