Policies addressing immigration in the United States remain at the forefront of legislators’ minds as the 117th Congress begins. Topics such as immigrant integration and the economic and fiscal consequences of immigration are among many that are relevant to the ongoing conversation about immigration. This webinar will reflect on two seminal reports on immigration from the National Academies – The Integration of Immigrants into American Society and The Economic and Fiscal Consequences of Immigration.  The webinar will feature immigration and policy experts who will address how research can inform the debates on immigration policy.
Speakers include:  Maria Echaveste, The Opportunity Institute; Michael Jones-Correa, University of Pennsylvania; Doug Massey, Princeton University; Ali Noorani, The National Immigration Forum; Mary Waters, Harvard University; Madeline Zavodny, University of North Florida
 
Ending Child Poverty: Examining Poverty Trends and Policy Implications
May 4, 2021 | 1-2:30 p.m. EDT
Registration forthcoming
The passage of the America Rescue Plan – the Covid-19 relief bill – will lead to significant cuts in child poverty. Policy proposals in the 2019 National Academies report A Roadmap to Reducing Child Poverty called for many of these and similar measures.  This webinar will discuss the policy implications of the report and look at what is known about poverty trends since the release of the report, as well as discuss the limitations of the report and directions for new research that can inform poverty-related policy decisions.
Speakers: Delores Acevedo-Garcia, Brandeis University; Isabel Sawhill, Brookings Institution; Greg Duncan, University of California, Irvine; Tim Smeeding, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Jane Waldfolgel, Columbia University
 
Advancing the Well-Being of LGBTQI+ Populations
June 7, 2021 | 10 a.m.-Noon EDT
Registration forthcoming
Individuals who identify as sexual and gender diverse—that is, those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, or non-binary (LGBTQI+), or who have same-sex and same-gender attractions or behaviors—have different experiences across their life course than their cisgender and heterosexual counterparts. The increase in prevalence and visibility of sexual and gender diverse populations illuminates the need for greater understanding of the ways in which current laws, systems, and programs affect their well-being. This webinar will discuss the research-based policy implications outlined in the report, Understanding the Well-Being of LGBTQI+ Populations, current LGBTQI+ policy considerations at the federal level, such as the Equality Act and section 1557, and recent changes to and topics of interest in state and local level policies.
Speakers:  Andrew Flores, American University; Sharita Gruberg, Center for American Progress; Nan Hunter, Georgetown University; Fran Hutchins, Equality Federation
