Caribbean Consulates Educate Atlanta Community on Immigration Rights
On March 11th 2017, the Consulate Generals representing different Caribbean islands in Atlanta brought the community together for education on their immigration rights. This topic has increasingly become top of mind for Caribbean immigrants within the current political climate. Anxiety levels continued to rise as policies and executive orders were issued from the White House that seemed to be targeted at immigrants. The consulates represented by Marva Jacobs of Guyana, Jewel Scott of Jamaica and David Cutting of Barbados saw this an opportunity to proactively address the concerns within their communities, arm everyone with the right information and create an environment of mutual support and empowerment. The diverse panel had representation across Caribbean countries, as well as, relevant legal occupations.
