The First 100 Days

January 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

- Free

This month brings new Congress and Administration and with it new opportunities to protect and defend forcibly displaced people. The new policymakers will bring change and opportunity for policies with impacts on refugees and those seeking protection from persecution, conflict, and violence, among other things.

On Jan. 19, join JRS/USA for a live virtual panel discussion on potential changes in US policy in the new year. We’ll be answers questions about what the current state of access to asylum is, what the Biden Administration has committed to, and what you can do to help amplify the voices of displaced brothers and sisters to these decision makers.

Panelists include:
Bill Hing – Professor, University of San Francisco, School of Law
Jenny Yang – Vice President for Advocacy & Policy, World Relief
Kate Phillips-Barrasso – Director of Humanitarian Policy, InterAction

You can view the event on JRS/USA’s website https://www.jrsusa.org/event/the-first-100-days/ and Facebook.
