FOCUS GROUP PARTICIPANTS NEEDED
CSBH has partnered with Children at Risk and the Tahirih Justice Center to research and analyze the impact recent immigration enforcement policies are having in our schools in order to design and implement support for affected teachers, students and families.  We are currently searching for parents of refugee or immigrant students to participate in a focus group with the Center for New American Children at Children at Risk.  For more information, please consult the pilot project overview as well as this information from UCLA's Civil Rights Project.  Contact Yael Ross, Director of the Center for New American Children, at yross@childrenatrisk.org with questions or interest.
