Efforts to deport and punish immigrants and asylum seekers intensify every month. In these trying times, advocates around the country are challenging injustice at all levels. The Binger Center’s annual forum brings together lawyers and other advocates to learn from each other’s victories and develop tools to continue the struggle to protect human rights, basic dignity, and the rule of law.

This year’s forum will cover a wide range of topics including the historical context for the present immigration crisis, actions taken by state and local governments to protect immigrants, the nuts and bolts of using habeas petitions to get clients out of detention, the devastating effects of the Remain in Mexico policy, and the attack on asylum, particularly for vulnerable women and girls.
