The Trump Administration’s repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in early September has put the nearly one million DACA recipients and their families at risk. Join us for a panel exploring the future of DACA, policy-actions taken by cities and activists, and the potential impact on immigrant communities.  New York City Council Speaker, Melissa Mark-Viverito will give a keynote address, followed by a panel including Van Tran, Professor of Sociology at Columbia University; Elora Mukherjee, Associate Clinical Professor of Law, and Director of the Immigrants' Rights Clinic at Columbia Law School; and Charlotte Gossett, Senior Manager of Member Engagement at New York Immigration Coalition. The panel will be moderated by Professor Ester R. Fuchs, Director of the Urban and Social Policy Program at the School of International and Public Affairs. A reception to follow. The event is sponsored by the Urban and Social Policy Concentration, and co-sponsored by the Economic and Political Development Concentration, SIPA Students of Color, and the Migration Working Group.
