In the wake of Trump’s election, many are asking what immigration policies might change and what the impacts will be on students and scholars’ ability to live, work and study at UW in the coming years. Join us to learn about what you can do and help strategize a collective response that actively protects those targeted by hostile immigration policies. An immigration attorney will be on hand to answer questions about your rights. For more information, check out the facebook event, and to help us make sure we have enough food, please RSVP.
