Supporting Young Children and Families Impacted by Immigration Policies
On September 27, Wendy Cervantes and Hannah Matthews will participate in an Early Childhood Webinar titled “Supporting Young Children and Families Impacted by Immigration Policies.”
Harsh immigration policies undermine the safety, health, and overall development of young children in immigrant families, the vast majority of whom are U.S. citizens. New and proposed immigration policies—including increased immigration enforcement actions–have threatened the well-being of millions of children, threatening to separate them from their parents and to cut them off from critical health and nutrition assistance.
The webinar, which will also feature Dr. Michael McNeil, will discuss how recent executive orders and other immigration policy proposals impact young children in immigrant families and what early childhood providers can do to help support their students and families who may be at risk.
