“We are excited to announce that the registration for the 11th Virginia Immigrant Advocates Summit is now open. This year’s event will be a two-day virtual summit that will allow attendees to participate safely while also engaging with speakers on topics important for immigrant communities in Virginia.
2020 has been a banner year for immigrant rights in Virginia with the passage of the state’s new in-state tuition law for all Virginia students regardless of their status and Virginia becoming the first southern state to pass driver’s license legislation for undocumented immigrants. This year’s summit will discuss these vital legislative reforms and their implementation as well as examine detention and police reforms within the context of immigrant enforcement. We will also look forward towards potential policy changes for immigrant rights at the 2021General Assembly.
This year’s summit will also provide a post 2020 presidential election debriefing and its impact of changes to federal immigration law including the DACA and TPS programs as well as the need for comprehensive immigration reform.”
