Event Details

Immigration Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA) Resources and Referrals

Provided by Family Paths (CEU Provider #62239) in conjunction with Chabot-Las Positas Community College District and Alameda County through Title IV-E Funding.  This workshop is free & open to those who work with children in the foster care system in Alameda County.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND

 

In the United States today millions of citizens live with at least one family member, often a parent, who is undocumented. Children make up the majority of these U.S. citizens. Additionally many U.S. citizen children of undocumented deportees may end up in the foster care system, often for no other reason than the undocumented status of a parent. Additionally immigration enforcement actions—and the ongoing threats associated with them—have significant physical, emotional, developmental, and economic repercussions on the children left behind. It can greatly benefit the relationship when those working with children and families dealing with immigration issues understand current policy and can answer referral questions posed by families. This training will review current changes to immigration law and policy, review client rights and referral options.

 

The Immigration Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA) helps immigrants, refugees, and their families join and contribute to the community. IIBA provides high-quality immigration legal services, education, and civic engagement opportunities. Eleonore Zwinger is a Senior Staff Attorney and Director of Alameda County Immigration Programs at the Immigration Institute of the Bay Area in Oakland California.
