Immigrant Learning Center webinar: Pandemic, Politics and the Future: Tackling Immigrant Anxiety and Trauma
Even in these stressful times for all, immigrants and refugees are under particular hardship. Increased enforcement, economic uncertainty, immigration restrictions and overrepresentation in essential jobs during a pandemic have put immigrants at unique risk for anxiety, stress and trauma. Join experts in psychology, social work and policy for the free webinar Pandemic, Politics and the Future: Tackling Immigrant Anxiety and Trauma on Thursday, November 12, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST.
In this historic and urgent year, join us to power our New American Dreams forward and ensure that the voices, concerns and visions of immigrant and refugee communities are front and center as the country emerges from the pandemic, the November elections, and begins the critical work of rebuilding our country and economy. Covid is still surging across the country and disproportionately impacting Black and Brown communities – on the frontlines, and suffering health and economic impacts. The urgent issues facing immigrant and refugee communities continue to compound every day. Our work and our communities can’t wait for a vaccine, so NIIC 2020 is going fully virtual! Join us online from wherever you are December 8-9, 2020!
