Not surprising, the topic of immigration is currently weighing heavily on the hearts and minds of many families in our community. While the Moran Center does not practice immigration law, our holistic model recognizes that it is difficult to address educational rights and criminal justice rights when a family is struggling with immigration status & documentation.
On February 2, the Moran Center partnered with the Child Care Network of Evanston, Y.O.U., and the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) to conduct a workshop for over 60 local social service providers who support immigrant and refugee families. ICIRR attorney Luis Huerta-Silva shared his expertise on navigating legal rights in the changing national climate. This is just one example of how the Moran Center works to create a tightly knit fabric of supports for our clients.
The immigration workshop was held at Y.O.U.’s beautiful new facilities. Below are additional photos.
