Connecting the Dots: Legal Pathways to Safety at the Border and Receiving Communities

Instituto del Progreso Latino had the honor of hosting and participating in a dynamic panel discussion. The event featured stories of our long-term work in welcoming newcomers and our ongoing efforts to support long-term undocumented residents and migrant families. We explored how we strive to create a community where everyone can find the support and opportunities they need to build a better future.

Thank you to all who attended and contributed to this vital conversation. Together, we are making a difference!
