    Immigrant & Refugee Policy
    The Philadelphia Bar Association, with the support of the City of Philadelphia and several non-profit legal aid organizations, has formed Take Action Philly (TAP) - an initiative uniting lawyers, government, community organizations and residents to protect and assist some of Philadelphia's most vulnerable residents. Together, we will identify ways to become involved and engaged in response to federal and state policy decisions.
    The first event of the series will focus on Immigrant and Refugee Policy. Members of the legal community are encouraged to attend and learn how to take action by working together to design solutions that can truly make a difference in the lives of many of our residents. Learn more here.
