On the Front Lines: Fighting Family Separation
Please note, this event has expired.
Join us for a conversation with Lee Gelernt, lead attorney in the ACLU’s successful class action lawsuit against the Trump administration to halt its unprecedented practice of separating immigrant families at the border.
ACLU-TN’s annual meeting will feature a conversation with Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project and lead attorney in the ACLU’s successful national class action lawsuit against the Trump administration to halt its unprecedented practice of separating immigrant families at the border.
On June 26, 2018, a federal court in San Diego issued an injunction holding the practice unconstitutional and requiring the administration to reunite the approximately 2,600 separated families. Since then, the Trump administration has separated an additional 911 families – including 13 infants. Most of these separations are cruel, unjustifiable, and excessive and the ACLU continues to fight to reunite separated families. Join us to learn the latest developments in this case. This event is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there.
Metro government is modernizing the parking garage adjacent to the Main Library. The project began late June 2016. Approximately 360 spaces will be added, and other improvements will be made to the garage. Seventy-five parking spaces are temporarily closed for the duration of construction. Project completion is expected in spring of 2018.
Due to the temporary parking space decrease and temporary lane closures, please allow extra time when planning to visit during peak hours or for special events.
