Detained and Removal Defense Learning Lab

What happens after ICE picks up an immigrant? How will the case differ if they are released or remain in detention throughout the removal process? Join this two-part learning lab to gain a better understanding of an immigrant’s journey through apprehension, processing, and detention.

Part I:  The morning session is designed to provide funders with the basics of detention and removal defense and will include case studies.

Part II:  The afternoon session is designed to provide funders with a discussion on more complex removal and detention issues.

Attendees will learn how philanthropy can respond to immigration detention and removal defense, where funding gaps exist, and opportunities for impact.   


Please join us for the whole day or for either one of the sessions. We invite you to enjoy lunch with us, whether you attend both sessions or morning/afternoon only.

Space is limited. Please RSVP by Monday, September 10th.
