Registration Form - BIMI Workshop "Responding to Challenging Times: Immigrant Well-being and Access to Services"
The Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative (BIMI) is excited to invite you to "Responding to Challenging Times: Immigrant Well-being and Access to Services" on Friday, December 6 at 9:00-12:00 in 109 Moses Hall at the UC Berkeley Campus. This event was previously postponed due to the PG&E power outage. But no blackout can keep us from organizing this hopefully 'illuminating' convening of researchers, policymakers, community service providers, and other stakeholders!
Since the court has (temporarily) blocked the changes to the public charge rule—and because the challenges that immigrants face go well beyond it--we aim to have a broader discussion about immigrant well-being and access to services in a climate where the federal government is trying to chill out the use of services or use service-seeking to deny secure migration status. BIMI will highlight key findings from our recent policy reports, profile research conducted by Berkeley researchers, and share our new interactive service-mapping website. We will also invite local stakeholders to share their challenges and responses to ensure immigrant well-being.
We would very much welcome your participation in the public event. The workshop will allow you to network with relevant stakeholders, learn about evidence-based strategies to improve access to immigrant services, and share what your organization is doing to ensure immigrant well-being.
We sincerely hope you can join us on December 6. For more information on the event, see the attached flyer or have a look at the event’s website page.
Please let us know if you will be able to attend or send someone on your behalf by filling in this registration form.
