​​Understanding the Journey of Cuban and Haitian Entrants

What will this webinar cover? 

The surge in asylum-seeking at the U.S. Southern Border arises from a myriad of challenges confronting Latin American and Caribbean nations, compelling more individuals to flee. Notably, significant numbers of people from Cuba and Haiti are arriving in the U.S. These individuals may qualify for specific benefits under the designation of Cuban Haitian Entrants while they navigate the immigration process. This webinar will examine the causes of asylum-seeking at the U.S. Southern Border, as well as the challenges faced during the journey to the U.S. and upon resettling. It will also explore the unique experiences of Cuban and Haitian Entrants and share resources and best practices for effectively serving this population. 


Is this webinar for me? 

This webinar is designed for newcomer service providers—in particular, those who work with Cuban and Haitian Entrants—who want to better understand the experiences and challenges faced by asylum seekers. However, no prior knowledge of Cuban and Haitian Entrants or previous work with asylum-seekers is required. 


Why should I participate? 
After participating in this 90-minute session, you will be able to:  

Explain the combination of drivers causing people to seek asylum at the U.S. Southern Border 

Describe the challenges asylum-seekers face on their journeys, at the U.S. border, and upon resettling, with particular attention to Cuban and Haitian Entrants’ experiences 

Apply trauma-informed approaches in serving recently arrived Cuban and Haitian Entrants
