The recent struggle to secure Comprehensive Immigration Reform is one of the great civil rights battles of our day. At stake are the lives of an estimated eleven million undocumented men, women, and children who currently reside in the country, vulnerable to family separation, unscrupulous exploitation at the workplace, and facing limited opportunities for advancement. Justice for these families and individuals is overdue.
Join the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law for a panel discussion on Comprehensive Immigration Reform. You will hear from leading immigrant rights advocates who are actively working to make CIR a reality. The speakers will provide an overview of CIR, discuss past legislative efforts, as well as current obstacles and opportunities to ensure that a fair CIR bill is passed and signed into law.
