Please join us for “How Local Law Enforcement Can Protect Immigrant Communities. . . Or Not” a conversation with Rebecca Glenberg, which will be held from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm on Wednesday, Oct 9, in Roosevelt’s 2nd floor Sullivan Room. The current Administration has relied heavily on local law enforcement to carry out the functions traditionally delegated to immigration and border control. The ACLU has been among the legal organizations tirelessly working to protect immigrant communities from invasive practices while advocating that local law enforcement does not fact undue burdens. Ms. Glenberg will discuss the way that the ACLU is advocating for these communities, and the most effective strategies all community members can take.
Rebecca Glenberg is a senior staff attorney at the ACLU of Illinois, where she works on a number of civil liberties issues including free speech, religious liberty, voting rights, criminal justice, and immigrants’ rights. Prior to joining the ACLU of Illinois in 2015, she was the Legal Director of the ACLU of Virginia for sixteen years. She received her B.A. from the University of Chicago and her J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School.
