We would like to invite all members of the community to a training/talk on the disproportionate immigration consequences of criminal convictions on March 27th, 2017 from 4-7pm at Georgetown University Law Center, McDonough Hall Room 156. The training will cover mitigation of immigration consequences in criminal court, with a focus on Virginia offenses, and challenges to the classification of state offenses as triggering deportation in immigration court.
VIATOR is thrilled to host a happy hour at Petworth Citizen on Tuesday, March 14 from 5 - 7pm. 10% of the proceeds will go to CAIR Coalition, a local nonprofit that works to keep families together by working with and for the immigrant men, women, and children facing detention and deportation.

We're pleased to announce that the next teach-in at Politics & Prose Bookstore will address the urgent issue of immigration.

What are the legal, political, economic and social costs to the Trump Administration's plans to build a wall along the Mexican border and restrict arrivals from majority-Muslim countries?
