Civil rights and legal group to host immigration reform info session in Alhambra

Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Los Angeles (AAAJ) will host Friday in Alhambra a presentation on President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration reform and how they will impact the San Gabriel Valley. The legal and civil rights organization will focus on the benefits and options available under the proposed plan and how the nonprofit and private sectors in the region can serve immigrant individuals and families.

Obama's plan could remove the threat of deportation and grant work permits for undocumented immigrants, impacting up to 4 million people in the United States. The AAAJ presentation is an opportunity for community members and organizations to learn how to better serve those impacted by the president's reform in the San Gabriel Valley, according to AAAJ legal advocate Michelle Saucedo.

“It is an informational session where people can learn what this all means and what we can do to work together and support the community in this endeavor," Saucedo said.

The event—“Understanding and Preparing for Administrative Relief Implementation”—will be held Dec. 5, 10 a.m.-12 p.m., at First Baptist Church, Room 101, 101 S. Atlantic Blvd. RSVP here.
