World Refugee Day Panel and Discussion
Jun 22, 2017 from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Please Join Us for a World Refugee Day Panel and Discussion
The Impact of the Administration's Immigration Policies on Migrants Fleeing Persecution
Refugees and asylum seekers face heightened threats from a presidential administration that seeks to build walls, ban travelers from certain countries en masse, and ramp up deportation of those seeking safety in the United States. These policies carry far-reaching legal and psychosocial implications for those seeking safety from violence and persecution.
Join us for a panel discussion on Thursday, June 22 to commemorate World Refugee Day at the University of Southern California's Gould School of Law focused on the administration's anti-refugee policies. Panelists will address the legal and public health consequences of these policies on the local and national stages, and what advocates can do to fight for refugee rights.
Our panelists will include:
- Dr. Linda Lopez, Chief, Office of Immigrant Affairs, Los Angeles Mayor's Office
- Dr. Cynthia Willard, Clinical Assistant Professor of Family Medicine, Keck Human Rights Project, Keck School of Medicine of USC
- Jenna Gilbert, Staff Attorney, Human Rights First
Hannah Garry, Clinical Professor of Law and Director, International Human Rights Clinic, USC Gould School of Law
We will serve light refreshments and appetizers after the panel.
Please RSVP by June 20 at humanrightsfirst.org/event/impact-administration-s-immigration-policies-migrants-fleeing-persecution.
Additional parking and venue information will be sent to attendees in advance of the event.
