Social workers from across Michigan are invited to attend this Region 8 Town Hall to discuss current immigration issues impacting our communities and how social workers can get involved. Local social workers will discuss how they are currently working with immigrant communities and regional resources. An overview of current issues surrounding immigrant community including legal barriers will be explored.

 

Social workers are invited to bring their resources, questions, and policy concerns. There will be time for open discussion and networking.
