On June 15, we were excited to hear DHS's announcement on deferred action for eligible undocumented youth. This announcement is really important for undocumented young people and their families, and we stand with immigrant communities who consider this nation their home. Our goal is to ensure that community members receive information on deferred action in an accurate and efficient manner. As the leading immigration publisher and with more than 12 years of experience in the immigration law field, we can connect organizations, like yours, with top immigration lawyers that can educate your membership and community. We would like to hold a workshop on deferred action in your city and with your participation to ensure we reach as many undocumented immigrants as possible. This workshop will not be a sales pitch, but an educational experience for your community. This collaboration between ILW.COM and your organization will entail the following benefits and expectations for you:
Benefits for your organization:
o The participation of a verified and knowledgeable immigration attorney in a workshop that will include a lengthy Q&A session
o Support from ILW.COM in logistics and outreach (e.g. we can provide you help with finding a suitable venue, creating flyers, drafting email blasts, etc)
o Address the attendees about your upcoming events, programs and how to get involved in your organization and campaigns
o The attorney will provide all the reference materials
o A sponsorship fee - we recognize the value and impact of your work in the community. We will provide a sponsorship fee for your programs and to subsidize any expenses incurred due to the workshop.
Expectations from your organization:
o Your commitment to spread the word about the workshop through your social networks, email lists, flyering and any other efforts to maximize attendance
o Your collaboration on the running of the workshop
If you are interested in taking part of this collaboration or have further questions, please email us at email@example.com or call us at 212-545-0818.
We look forward to working together and helping undocumented youth and communities.
This document outlines four ways to reach the immigrant population who may be eligible for deferred action as described by DHS Secretary Napolitano on June 15, 2012. This proposal has been tailored mainly for organizations that have a grassroots membership base that includes qualifying undocumented youth.
Deferred action, which would stop the deportation of qualifying undocumented youth and allow them to obtain work authorization, is one of the biggest breakthroughs on the immigration field provided by the federal government in this decade.
We encourage grassroots organizations to collaborate with various entities in order to meet the needs of undocumented youth and also to maximize benefits for all parties involved. Here are some possible collaboration scenarios with each of this type of entities:
Grassroots organizations should approach local law associations to collaborate on hosting workshops for immigrant communities. In exchange for a venue and an audience to talk to, the law association would provide pro bono services to individuals of the grassroots organization. These individuals should be selected on a financial need basis.
Grassroots organizations should approach large immigration law firms (ideally firms that have family and removal practices) to host a workshop for community members. The workshop will entail a presentation followed by a Q&A session. In return, organizations should request law firms a sponsorship fee for presenting in the workshop. We can assist in obtaining these sponsorships. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help.
Grassroots organizations should approach law schools that have active law clinics to collaborate on hosting workshops for the community. In exchange for the opportunity to address an audience, obtain practical experience, and develop a professional reputation, the grassroots organization will obtain pro bono services from the law school for individuals in need.
In order to meet the needs of the 1.2 million undocumented youth who could be eligible for deferred action, community-based organizations should work together to utilize their organizational resources efficiently. For example, such organizations could provide organizing and advocacy support for a legislative push for the DREAM Act and to stop deportations of undocumented youth.
