Mackler, director of Legal Initiatives at the New York Immigration Coalition; Alina Das, co-director at the Immigrant Rights Clinic at the New York University School of Law; Alizabeth Newman, director of the Community Legal Resource Network at the CUNY School of Law; and Jojo Annobil, executive director at the Immigrant Justice Corps. A large number of journalists from different ethnic and community media outlets attended the event and got a chance to ask questions important to their respective audiences.
