We are excited to announce that the registration for the 9th Virginia Immigrant Advocates Summit is now open.
The current administration has made drastic changes to immigration policy with an intent to detain and deport as many undocumented and documented immigrants as they can, separate families, and restrict future immigration into the country including those fleeing violence. We will be discussing all these changes at this year’s Summit as well as the changes to the political panorama at the state level and its impact on policies impacting immigrants and how the upcoming mid-term elections could affect immigration policy going forward.
We will also discuss ways to improve our collective advocacy efforts as we work to protect the rights of immigrant communities in Virginia.
We will be sending out a detailed event program soon.
