EVENT: Special Immigrant Juvenile Status: An Immigration Remedy for Abused, Neglected, and Abandoned Children
TIME: 6–9 p.m.
DESCRIPTION: The program will focus on meeting the growing need for legal services to assist the thousands of children who arrive in the United States each year who are not entitled to immigration counsel at government expense. Seeking refuge from abuse or migrating with parents who are unable or unwilling to care for them, some of these children are eligible for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, which allows unaccompanied minors to become permanent residents. This continuing legal education training program will teach attendees how to help such children secure a lawful future in the United States.
PRESENTED BY: New York Law School’s Justice Action Center and The Door
RSVP: Light dinner will be served. Preregistration is preferred by June 1. Please visit the Safe Passage Project for details and to register.
