Children of Immigrants Series: Webinar 1 of 3 January 23, 2019 Webinar
"A Closer Look: The Unique Needs and Promise of Children of Black Immigrants and Refugee Children"
Children within immigrant families are often targets of discrimination and further marginalization, particularly within the current political context. Within this vulnerable and resilient population, children of black immigrants and children in refugee families constitute a growing segment of children in our society. Black children of immigrants--most with parents from Africa and the Caribbean--and refugee youth from Muslim backgrounds can experience significant health and economic disparities as they grow. This webinar will focus on the educational, health, and mental health outcomes of these two populations of children and include a discussion of research and policy recommendations on how to best serve and support them.
