Meet Up: Padilla (Immigration Consequences Advice) Meet Up
Friday, July 24 , 2020 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern, 120 minutes
Meet Up Facilitators: Nadine Wettstein, Benita Jain, Wendy Wayne
About the Meet Up: As this country reckons like never before with its long-standing history of anti-black police violence that arrests, incarcerates and kills Black people, so many public defenders have been fiercely showing up. Many of you who advise defense attorneys about avoiding deportation triggers are also acutely aware that Black immigrants are disproportionately targeted by these dual systems of oppression: the criminal system and the immigration system.
We hope this informal meeting will be a place for us all to share the state of Padilla institutionalization in our offices or states, discuss challenges, and offer ideas and support to each other. We are also aware there's a lot more than we can possibly cram into two hours, but we hope this meeting will start to reconnect us as a community.
