To Better serve Our Neighbors
JFON unites for annual Roundtable in Detroit
Representatives from our 17 JFON sites and three prospective sites, along with National Board members, staff, guests, and partners met this past month to share, network and learn how we can better serve our immigrant neighbors.
HILSC also offered a scholarship for those unable to cover the $495 filing fee. Of the 23 young people who renewed their DACA, 20 of them were able to receive this aid.
All in all, a good day’s work!
Help us #SaveTPS
by Melissa Bowe, NJFON Program and Advocacy Manager
Temporary Protected Status (TPS) was created to provide protection to those in the United States when it is unsafe for them to return home. TPS has given about 330,000 people from 10 countries the opportunity to rebuild their lives in America.
Now these folks are at risk of losing their status.
We want to keep TPS protections intact and extend all TPS protections for at least 18 months, and for as long as the dangerous conditions in these countries persist.
We at JFON have hundreds of clients with TPS. They risk being separated from their families and communities and sent back to a country that is unsafe. We must act now to #SaveTPS!
