Immigration and Refugees

The Immigrant Learning Center in Boston has a huge amount of resources available to help us mitigate the trauma of immigration, and in some cases, deportation. Working-age males are the most deported demographic, often leaving their female partners to support children, our students, on their own. The ILC webinars are very informative, helpful, and easy to access. If you have immigrants in your school, they are well worth the time.
