Monday, April 13
Note: The public is invited to join this free event on Immigrants, Public Benefits, and COVID-19.
Cornell Law School, together with additional Cornell departments, Miller Mayer LLP, and Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga counties, offers a free webinar on new changes on immigrants’ access to public benefits. We will also discuss the impact of COVID-19 care on the public charge analysis and provide resources for more information about COVID-19 and immigrant healthcare issues.
The webinar is intended for a nationwide audience, including immigrants who may be impacted, legal service providers, and social workers.
Find out if you or your clients are subject to the new "public charge" rule and if so, how to comply. Get answers to questions such as:
* Can I get food from the local food pantry?
* Can my child still get free school lunches?
* Will I be deported if I go to the emergency room?
* Can I see my doctor if I am pregnant?
* Will seeking COVID-19 related care affect my immigration status?
* If I am furloughed or laid off because of COVID-19, can I get unemployment benefits?
Webinar registration: The webinar is on Monday, April 13, from noon-1 pm Eastern time.
The webinar will also be recorded for later viewing. The slide deck and handouts will be made available during the presentation.
Event organizers: Cornell Law School, Miller Mayer LLP, Catholic Charities of Tompkins and Tioga counties, with additional support from Cornell's Migrations initiative, the Office of Global Learning and the Institute of Politics and Global Affairs.
