On September 26 & 27 MCH is hosting our Annual Conference titled “How Far Can We Go” in Brainerd, MN.
Join us for great opportunities to network, learn, and grow with organizations from across the state working to end homelessness. There will be over 45 breakout sessions to attend with different topics and specializations related to housing stability and economic security.
Anne Quincy and Jessica Webster share their knowledge in their breakout session: “Know Your Clients’ Immigration Rights”.
“Know Your Clients’ Immigration Rights” Workshop Description:
Some organizations are beginning to receive reports of local law enforcement asking immigration status questions at community-based organizations that provide safety net services. Join this workshop to better understand the resources available for both services providers and clients when:
- Law enforcement visits your location and ask clients for identification,
- Law enforcement asks individuals about immigration status,
- Law enforcement asks you to identify clients or share data,
- Visits are made by ICE,
- Visits are made within your building versus in proximity to your location.
Discussion with Legal Aid attorney Anne Quincy and immigration experts facilitated by Jessica Webster, staff attorney with Legal Services Advocacy Project.
Their breakout is on Tuesday, September 26, 3:15 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Click here to view the different breakout sessions.
What will it take to reach our ultimate goal? Where can we look for more innovative models that expand our current practices? Who can bring new energy to our work and offer fresh ideas for the road ahead? How far can we push the envelope?
The MCH 2017 conference will build on the momentum and intersectionality of our work. Together, we will consider creative solutions that spark new energy, carry us through the road ahead, and connect across diverse perspectives.
