Life or Death: Immigration, Intersectionality, & What You Can Do to Help

07-Dec-2016

On Thursday, December 1, the LGBT Bar hosted a call-in, co-sponsored by HNBA and NAPABA, addressing the increased risk of deportation as a result of the change in administration.  The most vulnerable among us are the most frequent targets of attacks, especially following the nationalistic and hateful rhetoric of this campaign season. The United States currently hosts more than eleven million undocumented workers, who provide an irreplaceable work force.

Let’s stop agonizing and start organizing; make an immediate difference in the lives of detainees today. The LGBT Bar is searching for volunteers, both Spanish speaking and non-Spanish speaking, willing to provide assistance to women and children fleeing from persecution that are now being detained at the family detention center in Dilley, TX.

Hear from expert speakers including Scott Titshaw, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs & Associate Professor, Mercer University School of Law; Elaine Cintron, Associate Attorney, Lichter Immigration; and Noemi Masliah, Partner, The Masliah Firm.
