Eco-Series Film for February: Climate Change, Refugees, & the American Immigration System

  • |
  • |

We welcome Sarah Owings, an immigration attorney and advocate, to discuss how climate change and its root causes have affected the lives of people seeking protection through the U.S. immigration system. She will share her experience representing migrants in asylum proceedings and explain the current legal landscape for climate refugees and her thoughts on what can be done to address this emerging problem.

Sarah is a partner at Owings MacNorlin, LLC, in Atlanta, Georgia. She earned a Juris Doctor degree from the College of Law at Georgia State University in 2007, and she has practiced immigration law exclusively since that time. Sarah has experience in removal defense, family-based immigration, humanitarian forms of relief, and asylum proceedings. Sarah has volunteered as a pro bono attorney in numerous asylum cases, and she has worked collectively with attorneys, organizers, and advocates to address emerging issues that affect migrants, including the closure of the southern border to asylum seekers, the rapid expansion of for-profit civil detention centers, the deplorable conditions of migrant detention, and disparate outcomes in asylum proceedings throughout the United States. She is frequently asked to speak at continuing legal education programs and to provide commentary to the media on the rapidly changing immigration landscape. In 2017, Sarah was elected to the Board of Governors of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, and she currently serves that board as an Elected Director. Sarah is a past board member of the Georgia Asylum and Immigration Network and is currently a board member of Immigrant’s List, a PAC dedicated to reforming our broken immigration system, stopping anti-immigrant policies, and electing pro-reform candidates to office.
