Family Separation, Refugees, & Immigrants: Briefings & Interactive Discussion

An urgent briefing on the crisis involving family separation, refugees, and immigrants. Please note: while this topic is developing rapidly, thousands of children remain separated from their parents and transported far away, with no clear prospect of reunification. Numerous broader and longer-term issues are also involved in this crisis. (Please note: the interactive discussion between funders that followed these briefings is not included in the video.)
