MCF Member Briefing: Meeting the Needs of Asylum Seekers from the Southern Border

10 a.m. - 11 a.m.
Share This Event

With the end of Title 42, Minnesota communities are preparing for a potential influx of people who have been admitted at the US Southern border. This is likely to result in immediate basic needs and legal services for those arriving in Minnesota as they settle here and navigate new pathways for legal immigration established by the federal government. While some state and federal funds are available for specific purposes, private philanthropic resources will address gaps that public resources can’t fill, reflecting Minnesota’s deep history as a welcoming state that has long valued and supported the immigrant communities that make Minnesota their new home.

Join MCF and our presenters Rachele King, State Refugee Coordinator, Minnesota Department of Human Services; Michele Garnett McKenzie, Deputy Director, The Advocates for Human Rights; and Hanne Sandison, Refugee & Immigrant Program Director, The Advocates for Human Rights to learn how you can support.

Log-in details will be provided in your confirmation email. For additional information, please reach out to Josh Vang,
