The prior Administration made public hostility toward immigrants of African descent a point of pride. This panel will explore efforts by advocates, academics, policymakers, and activists to address how equal protection for Black immigrants has failed and explore ideas to create a more equitable future. The panelists will discuss efforts to challenge many of these harmful policies including the travel ban and revocation of Temporary Protected Status and DACA, among other topics, through strategic litigation.

- Alioune Ly, Secretary General, Mauritanian Human Rights Network
- Moderated by Karla McKanders, Clinical professor of law and the director of the Immigration Practice Clinic at Vanderbilt University
