FDLA Presents CrImmigration Law: What First Defenders Need to Know

Join us Friday February 17th at Elastic Arts in Logan Square as our expert panel discusses CrImmigration Law: What’s at Stake when immigrants of color don’t know or access their rights when in contact with the Chicago Police? What do First Defenders need to know and how do we watchdog the promises of a sanctuary city?  4-6 p.m. reception to follow!

Come learn how 1-800-LAW-REP4 connects with so many of our top priorities nationwide: the criminalization of immigrant status, poverty, homelessness, melanin (people of color) and more. Bring colleagues and friends & share this event!
