Description:
Since 1996 over 1.3 million people have been deported. Immigrants are the fastest growing segment of the US prison population. With
12% of inmates foreign-born, New York State has the highest ratio of immigrants in its prison population. Service providers, organizers,
advocates and activists must confront deportation in their day-to-day work in criminal justice, housing, worker rights, and mental health
issues - often without the resources to deal with it. Yet there are basic steps that we can ALL take to defend immigrant rights! The topics
discussed will include an overview of detention and deportation systems, service and advocacy strategies for people facing
deportation or at-risk, information about referrals and documentation, ideas for addressing the needs of immigrant families,
and discussions on strategies for the future. We will also provide written materials, including fact sheets and self-help
materials for immigrants facing deportation. The training will bring different service providers, community organizers, advocates, and
activists committed to anti-deportation work together to share information. We expect that many of you are already working with
immigrant and criminal justice communities. We encourage you to bring any resource materials to share with us and other participants.
6 CLE credits (2.5 credits in professional practice, 3 credits in skills and .5 credit in ethics). This course provides transitional
credit for newly admitted attorneys and non-transitional credit for experienced attorneys.


    This training is free to all participants, but space is limited and therefore registration in advance is required.
