VIRTUAL: The ABCs of Immigration: An Introductory Series
The Reading Public Library is excited to partner with the MIRA Coaltion to offer a 3-part series to present relevant, up-to-date, and accurate information on immigration topics, open to all individuals who would like to increase their knowledge of immigration-related topics and learn about helpful resources for practice with immigrant populations. You may register for all three sessions, or choose individual sessions. Zoom information will be shared with registration.
The first session, ABCs of Immigration, provides an overview of common immigration statuses, the privileges and restrictions associated with each, and common pathways to obtain legal immigration status — including through family and humanitarian protections.
Future sessions will cover the following topics:
Rights and Benefits for Immigrants, April 24 @7pm: https://libcal.readingpl.org/event/10315839
Immigration Policy Updates and the Work Ahead, May 8 @7pm: https://libcal.readingpl.org/event/10315849
MIRA was founded in 1987 in response to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which allowed 3–5 million undocumented immigrants to become permanent residents. The goal was to not only advocate for the rights and integration of those immigrants, but also build a diverse, member-driven coalition to advance the interests of all foreign-born people.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Reading Public Library.
