Kalman Resnick was a Panelist at an ARISE Chicago Symposium on Immigrant Workers Rights

Shareholder Kalman Resnick was a panelist at ARISE Chicago’s symposium on Wednesday, September 7th.  ARISE Chicago organized the symposium to educate unions, workers rights centers, and immigrant community organizations about policy changes recently adopted by the Biden Administration to better protect immigrant workers during labor disputes, labor organizing campaigns, and litigation to rectify labor violations.  The symposium trained participants on how to utilize policy changes by the U.S. Department of Labor, the National Labor Relations Board, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to defend undocumented immigrant workers from adverse immigration actions in retaliation for exercising their labor and employment rights. Mr. Resnick discussed possibilities for obtaining employment authorization or U or T nonimmigrant status with a pathway to lawful permanent residence and U.S. citizenship. The symposium also educated participants about the Biden Administration’s current efforts to secure additional protections for immigrant workers.  ARISE Chicago is a nonprofit dedicated to building partnerships between workers and faith communities to fight workplace injustice through organizing and advocacy for policy changes.
