From Crisis to Crossroads:
Protections in Law for Migrants and Refugees

September 24, 2020 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The global pandemic requires us to unite and protect one another. During this critical time, we respect the courage of refugees, recognizing the hardships they have faced coming to this country, and the positive impact they bring to our local communities. On September 24, 2020, please join us online for a distinguished panel discussion on various forms of protections in law for migrants and refugees, including those that protect against the human trafficking.

This free event is open to the public with registration and part of a larger series in honor of the 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees.  It is hosted in partnership with the Immigration Law Students Association (ILSA) at St. Thomas University School of Law.
