SCG is co-sponsoring a Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees webinar exploring the immediate concerns facing immigrant and refugee communities. 

The 2016 presidential election outcome has left many immigrants and refugees—and second- and third-generation U.S. citizens—living in uncertainty. Hate-based incidents  are on the rise, and President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to deport millions of unauthorized immigrants, cancel Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), suspend refugee resettlement from “terror-prone” countries, and block remittances as part of his border wall plan. These policies, several of which are planned for the first 100 days in office, could have a powerful impact on our economy, families, and communities, as well as America’s position in the world. 

Featured Speakers:

This webinar will provide early analyses of the policy and political landscape including the new Congress, and offer a preview of plans to protect due process and fundamental rights at the local, state, and federal level. Funders will have the opportunity to discuss what can be done now to support immigrants and refugees and the organizations that serve them. With conditions on the ground changing rapidly and details on the policy front still emerging, this is the first of many webinars that GCIR and our partners will organize to keep funders informed of critical developments.
