NJ Immigrant Rights Summit

Every year the NJ Immigrant Rights Summit brings together organizers, advocates, and directly impacted community members to discuss how far we have come and the challenges that lie ahead allowing us to create a vision that guides the work of New Jersey immigrant rights advocacy going forward.

¡Este año, la Cumbre anual de Derechos de los Inmigrantes de NJ se llevará a cabo virtualmente! Debido a la pandemia, estamos organizando cuatro paneles virtuales "independientes" sobre las prioridades del NJAIJ sobre los derechos de los inmigrantes.
