In about a year, the undocumented population in the U.S. is expected to increase significantly due to changes in federal immigration policies, including termination of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED). The end of these programs affects approximately 1.2 million people who have lived legally in the U.S. for years as well as their families. When their current protections expire, many of these individuals will lose access to critical benefits such as government-issued identification, driving privileges, and access to higher education. Speakers will address potential challenges a new group of undocumented individuals could face in obtaining employment and critical services they once had access to, such as banking services, housing, health care, and applying for public benefits for their qualifying dependents. Participants will learn what strategies they can develop to work with local allies to prepare for such a significant change and support their communities.
