Shaping the Future of DACA

February 22, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Please join us for a half-day conference on
Thursday, February 22
12:00 p.m. — 6:00 p.m.

Concourse Level, Columbia School of Social Work
1255 Amsterdam Avenue, NYC


DACA, a five-year-old policy, has provided temporary protection to about 800,000 undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. as “minors” from deportation and provide them with a work “permit.” The impending end of DACA raises many urgent questions about the impact and future of DACA, a debate that has occurred in a policy and national context that is often devoid of scientific evidence, despite the existence of rigorous and innovative research that shows that DACA has clearly benefited recipients of the program.

This conference will highlight the most recent research and advocacy work on DACA. The academic and policy panels will engage in a discussion the past, present and future of DACA and its impact on the immigrants and local communities across the country.
