Webinar: The Critical Role of Philanthropy in the TPS Journey for Justice

Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and RefugeesOver 400,000 immigrants hold Temporary Protected Status (TPS) or have been offered Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) and over 200,000 U.S. citizen children have parents with one of theses statuses. The cancellation of TPS and DED is another crisis around the corner –immigrant advocates are ready to fight back.

Since the cancellation of Temporary Protected Status for countries such as El Salvador, Haiti, and Nepal, a new movement of immigrant leaders has emerged fighting for permanent residency.

While some of these groups are young and new to legislative advocacy, they’ve already had historic wins. TPS/DED leaders were essential in the passage of H.R. 6, the Dream Promise Act, which was the first legalization bill to move out of the House of Representatives in nearly a decade.

Nonprofits organizing the TPS/DED community represent an urgent opportunity for funders to support Black, Asian, and Central American voices in the movement; build power in key regions; and ramp up the pressure on Congress for legalization. With major deadlines looming around litigation, renewals, and DACA (the SCOTUS decision is coming in 2020), now is the time for funders to invest in this dynamic and diverse new movement.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is investing over $1M in catalytic grants in the TPS/DED space in 2019, along with additional investments related to training, capacity building, and strategy development. Join CZI and movement leaders to learn more about this critical work and why it is essential for funders to invest in this space.
