Justice Power: Tech Innovation

  • Other Immigration
  • Advocacy

Tech innovations are creating a new generation of tools to build agency, knowledge, and community for immigrants in the United States despite geographic separation. These tools are rooted in legal empowerment for directly impacted communities to know, use, and shape the laws that impact their lives. Panelists from Villanova University and Immigration Advocates Network will share insights on developing online tech tools that increase access to essential resources and legal support for immigrants. The teach-in will highlight VIISTA, a three-module online certificate program which trains people to become Department of Justice accredited representatives; Innovation Law Lab's latest projects, and IAN websites that connect immigrants to legal resources tailored to their lived realities. Join us to learn how community members, organizers, and attorneys are working together to advance grassroots justice during the digital age.

The panelists are Michele Pistone, Professor of Law, Villanova University, and Founding Faculty Director, VIISTA: Villanova Interdisciplinary Immigration Studies Training for Advocates; Ian Philabaum, Director of Border Programs, Innovation Law Lab; Pat Malone, Associate & Legal Director, Immigration Advocates Network (IAN); Mary Ann McLean, VIISTA program; and Jillian Jin, AmeriCorps VISTA, Pro Bono Remote Volunteer Project Coordinator, IAN.
