Please join the Junior Board of Advocates for Children of New York (AFC) and the NYU School of Law's Education Law and Policy Society to discuss the experience of undocumented young people, particularly those who arrived recently, as they enter the City and try to access their right to a public education. Panelists include experts on the immigration process, local and state policies concerning immigrant students and English language learners, and best practices for social-emotional support for students in schools. We invite you to join the conversation with your questions following the panel presentation.
