Virtual Teach-in: Federal Advocacy For Family-Based Immigration

Online

Immigrant and refugee stories are as varied and diverse as our communities themselves, but most share a few common themes: safety, opportunity, and above all, family. Yet under the previous administration, we saw bedrock immigration programs – including family-based, employment-based, diversity visa lottery, and refugee resettlement programs – begin to crumble as a result of repeated attempts to stifle immigration and refugee admissions. On Wednesday, March 10th at 12pm HST/2pm PST/4pm CST/5pm EST, the Value Our Families campaign will host a teach-in about family-based, employment-based, diversity visa programs and refugee resettlement programs and how legislative policies like the US Citizenship Act and the Reuniting Families Act can advance these programs.

Come learn how you can support federal advocacy around these issues and get involved in upcoming mobilizations, including our Week of Action launching in three weeks. We are at a critical time to take advantage of the momentum of the first 100 days of the new administration and to fight for permanent solutions that keep families together.
