The 20th Annual National Immigrant Justice Center’s (NIJC) Human Rights Awards luncheon will be an historic celebration to honor human rights champions and celebrate the contributions of business, philanthropic, and community leaders. The event draws more than 1,000 attendees and provides critical funding for NIJC to ensure that it can continue promoting human rights and access to justice for immigrants.
A thought-provoking conversation among former NIJC clients who won asylum and other forms of legal protection, as they discuss their lives in the United States. The discussion will be moderated by JULISSA ARCE, immigrant rights advocate and nationally best-selling author of My (Underground) American Dream.
