In light of the recent United States Supreme Courts split decision on Administrative Relief, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and the expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA+) remain blocked. The New York Public Library, Queens Library, and Brooklyn Public Library will be hosting a tri-library staff training to discuss how this decision affects our immigrant communities and how staff can continue to support immigrant community members in an empowering way. There are two tracks attendees can register for, Community Ambassadors and Community Navigators. Ambassadors and Navigators can also help individuals understand the larger picture, and why it is critical that they make their voices heard to bring about humane immigration reform for everyone. This training is designed for the tri-library staff.

Community Ambassador Track:
Trained Community Ambassadors will be able to convey how to find accurate information about immigration program and benefits and make high quality referrals to trusted legal services. Topics covered for Ambassadors are Why Administrative Relief will not be fully implemented; US v. Texas Its Impact; Our Community the Fight for Reform; Community Navigator Model; Immigration Law Basics; Unauthorized Practice of Law; Original DACA; and, Naturalization. This is a half-day training.
