DACA Renewal Training Webinar
Tuesday 9/19/2017
12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

On Sept. 5, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the rescission and “winding down” of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provided temporary protection from deportation and employment authorization for close to 800,000 undocumented young immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. Please join the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) and the Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY) for a  webinar on Tuesday, September 19 at 12:00 pm ETThis is a free training for attorneys who are interested in volunteering to assist DACA beneficiaries who must meet a filing deadline of Oct. 5, 2017 to renew their deferred action and work authorization. The training will run approximately 1.5 hours and will be led by Annie J. Wang , a staff attorney at AALDEF’s Immigrant Access to Justice project, and Amanda Bernardo, an immigration attorney in private practice and a co-chair of AABANY’s Immigration Committee, and will focus on what you need to know in order to help current DACA recipients complete and submit renewal applications.
