Join HIAS for a monthly program offering compassion and solidarity to asylum seekers in detention through a formal letter writing program with individuals who have requested correspondence, helping them access hope and connection.

If a natural disaster strikes or civil conflict erupts in an immigrant’s homeland while they are in the U.S., they may find themselves forcibly displaced and unable to return home. For people in this precarious position, Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, often serves as a critical lifeline, allowing temporary reprieve from deportation as well as permission to work in the U.S. Over the past 10 months, the Biden Administration has used this tool to provide relief for thousands of immigrants in the U.S., including Venezuelans, Burmese, Haitians, and Somalis.  

Having a criminal record, or living in another country before coming to the U.S. may make a noncitizen from a TPS-designated country ineligible for TPS protection. Join us to learn more about the issues that can complicate a TPS application, especially for Haitian applicants, as well as best practices in overcoming these issues to obtain TPS for pro bono clients. This training will be offered free of charge. CLE credit will be available to attendees of the live training. A recorded version of this training will be available on a later date.  ​ 

Join us for a facilitated session of the HIAS Book and Film Club on Friday, October 22 from 12pm-1pm ET to discuss the book How to Pronounce Knife by Souvankham Thammavongsa.
