“Recent Developments in Civil Rights, 
Racial Justice & Immigrants’ Rights”
with Iván Espinoza-Madrigal

This talk will focus on the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice recent work. We filed the first lawsuits in the country against the Trump Administration to protect sanctuary cities; to save Temporary Protected Status (TPS) on behalf of Haitians and Central American immigrants; and to block immigration arrests in courthouses.

Iván Espinoza-Madrigal is the Executive Director of Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice. Under his leadership, the organization has become a hub for litigation, advocacy, and resistance in response to the current climate. Iván has filed and won dozens of life-changing and law-changing cases on a wide range of civil rights issues, including racial justice, immigrants’ rights, and LGBT/HIV equality.
