Legal Representation for Immigrant Youth and Families (CCP webinar)

In 2018, CCP hosted a webinar, Legal Representation for Immigrant Youth: What Funders Can Do to Help, with leaders from Connecticut's three largest legal aid firms serving immigrants and refugees. The discussion centered around the critical need for legal representation for immigrant youth and families in Connecticut, particularly in light of the current federal administration's "zero tolerance" policy.
