Please join us for a funders’ briefing on the Greater Boston Immigrant Defense Fund.

The Fund, launched on September 13, is a public-private partnership and funding collaborative that seeks to strengthen the Greater Boston area's capacity to protect and defend its many immigrant communities, refugees, and temporary status holders by increasing education and access to legal services.
The briefing will include an overview of the fund, updates from partners including the Mayor's Office for Immigrant Advancement (MOIA), Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation (MLAC) and Massachusetts Law Reform Institute (MLRI), and hearing from the funders’ perspective, followed by a Q&A. The fund is made possible by Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), a national network of foundations working on issues related to immigrant integration, as well as by contributions from local philanthropic, corporate and legal partners. Contributors to date include the Barr Foundation, the Klarman Family Foundation, the Boston Foundation, the Fish Family Foundation, the Herman and Frieda L. Miller Foundation, Foley Hoag, and the Hyams Foundation, the lead funder for the initiative.
