New York City Councilmember Jumaane D. Williams, New York State Senator Kevin S. Parker (whose district includes Windsor Terrace and part of Kensington), New York State Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte, and District Leader Josue Pierre will host "State of Immigration: State of Emergency." At this immigration forum, attendees will learn about immigration policy changes under President Trump and how to prepare for them.

The forum's goal is to energize people to take action, organize, and learn how to survive during the next four years. These topics will be discussed:

  • Citizenship Family Based Petitions
  • Immigration Fraud and Family Reunification
  • DACA/DAPA Asylum Filing
  • Fee Changes
  • Temporary Protected Status (TPS)
  • Deportation

A panel discussion will take place, and representatives from city agencies and local organizations will answer questions about immigrant rights and the changes to our country’s immigration policies.

The event is co-sponsored by the Flatbush YMCA, New York Immigration Coalition, Haitian American Lawyers Association of New York, Haitian American Caucus, and the Council of People’s Organization.
