National Attention to In re. BTB

Hello PDA Members-

We wanted to make you aware of the fact that the ripples from In re. BTB are being felt across the country!

Viven Sankaran (who many of you will remember was one of our keynote speakers at last year's annual conference, and a great friend and ally of the PDA) recently wrote a short piece for the Chronicle of Social Change giving a shout out to In re. BTB. And if any of you are on the ABA listserv for parents' attorneys, you will have noticed it pop up there, too! You can read the article in its entirety here:

Even better- at our next training event on Friday, October 12, 2018 from 10-12, Rob Latham, the attorney who successfully argued the case, and Sara Pfrommer, former PDA Appellate Defender of the Year, will be presenting on In re. BTB! Spots are filling up fast, so you'll want to register soon. And as always, FREE LUNCH is included with our fall CLE event. 

If you'd like to register for this training opportunity (which will also include an hour of training on the intersection between immigration and parental defense work), please click here

Looking forward to seeing many of you soon!
