Unpacking the Legal Framework Enabling Recent Family Separation Atrocities

1.0 ethics credits in PA, IL, CT, NY, NJ, FL

The injustice of Trump administration’s “Family Separation” policy did not arise overnight. The policy is in many ways an outgrowth of long-standing inequities in the immigration, child welfare, family and criminal justice systems. Expert speakers in these fields will explain how these and other elements of our justice system have separated families unnecessarily for decades and continue to do so today.
