Update Reserve your tickets by Wednesday, October 16, for a discounted price – $30 for general admission and $10 for students. (Fee waivers are available upon request.)

The one-day 2019 Open Borders Conference will be a space for activists, scholars, organizers, lawyers, students and members of the community to come together to learn what open borders might look like; why open borders would lead to dramatic increases in public safety, prosperity, and equality; and what it would mean to #AbolishICE.

Hear from keynote speakers Satsuki Ina and Michael Huemer, who will be joined by other experts in a day-long dialogue on the theory and practice of open borders immigration policy. One of the sessions will be a 1.5-credit Continuing Legal Education seminar for attorneys on the topic of legal advocacy for people taking sanctuary in churches (New York CLE credit application pending).

Free Migration Project advocates for recognition of migration as a basic human right, and we support the growing movement to abolish immigration enforcement and open the borders.
