Kojo In Your Community: The Impact Of Immigration Policies On Students And Families In D.C.

By Victoria Chamberlin

Policies surrounding DACA, ICE raids, and Temporary Protected Status have changed in recent months. How are students dealing with the associated trauma and what is the impact on their learning environment?

With young people at the center of this issue and immigrant families straddling two worlds at risk, advocates and government officials will join recent graduates and students to discuss the unique needs of this community.

This live forum hosted by Kojo Nnamdi will bring students and community leaders together for a conversation about how immigration policies affect the lives of families in our region.
