The 31st Annual National Symposium on Family Issues on Immigration Policy and Immigrant Families will be held Oct. 23–24 in the HUB-Robeson Center, room 233B, University Park, in person and virtually.
The symposium will bring together an exceptional panel of scholars whose research is devoted to immigrant families, who aim to better understand how public policies and practices are impacting this large and growing group.
According to the symposium organizers, immigrant families are heavily influenced by immigration policies. Immigration enforcement and border policies shape family migration strategies in home communities and contribute to the separation of children from their parents. Immigrant families also encounter unique stresses related to settlement, language and cultural differences, race/ethnicity, and low income, all of which are complicated by immigrants’ legal status.
Registration is required to attend the symposium in-person, virtually, and to view the recording of the symposium. Attendance is free and is open to the public.
