CECR logoEducators, counselors, school administrators and preservice educators can get a crash course on how the recent executive orders on immigration affect their work at "Immigration in a New Administration: What Educators Need to Know." The program, co-sponsored by the Center for Education and Civil Rights in the College of Education and Penn State Law’s Center for Immigrants’ Rights, will run from 3:45 to 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, April 5, in Panorama Village Building, Room A, 240 Villa Crest Drive, State College.

Speakers will provide an “Immigration 101 for Educators” description of the recent executive orders on immigration, and also draw connections between immigration enforcement and schools. The program will focus on K-12 educators’ rights and responsibilities regarding immigration, existing federal guidance for children from immigrant families, and offer ideas for communicating with families affected by these policies and achieving a safe learning environment for all children.

Space is limited, so those interested in attending should RSVP to centerforimmigrantsr@pennstatelaw.psu.edu by April 3. For resources about immigration, visit https://pennstatelaw.psu.edu/immigration-after-election online.
