You’re Not Stuck: Changing State Laws to Benefit Immigrant Youth

Webinar Details

This presentation was part of day 1 of the 6th Annual Symposium.

Many advocates feel limited by their state laws when trying to seek state court orders for SIJS-eligible youth, i.e. for youth over age 18 or youth in ORR custody. However, it is possible to engage in advocacy to change state laws to benefit the youth that we serve. Wherever possible, advocates should explore options to change their state law rather than feeling stuck with it. This presentation will discuss RMIAN’s creative advocacy that led to legislative change in Colorado.
