Connecting with Newly Arrived and Immigrant Families

Recent immigration enforcement policies and natural disasters have impacted children and families, and have also had consequences for their teachers, principals, counselors and fellow classmates. In this session, we will discuss strategies schools and communities are using to welcome newly arrived and immigrant families. We will also have the benefit of legal expertise to help us understand families’ and schools’ rights and responsibilities.

Guests: Joel Cruz, M.Th., Director of the Institute for the Hispanic Family

Kimberly Bobin, Family & Early Childhood Coordinator, Wethersfield Public Schools

Meghann E. LaFountain, Esq., LaFountain Immigration Law, LLC
