🗓️ Tuesday - March 22, 2016
This week we’ll discuss immigration in tech and the upcoming landmark immigration case in front of the Supreme Court.
Please welcome Gabriel, an attorney for the law firm O’Melveny & Myers, who is advocating on behalf of Jane Doe’s #1-3 in the upcoming DAPA/DACA Supreme Court case.
Gabriel Markoff is an experienced and knowledgeable litigator specializing in white collar defense work, corporate investigations, and general business litigation, with a particular focus on appellate litigation. In addition, Gabriel maintains an active pro bono practice working with a national non-profit civil rights group on impact litigation designed to defend minority voting rights and advance immigrants’ rights nationwide.
As usual, we will have some time to chat and network before and after the talk.
We also have a slack channel where you can interact with the community, request an invitation at http://latinosin.tech/ (http://latinos.herokuapp.com/)

Techqueria is a nonprofit that empowers Latinx professionals in the tech industry by building networking and career advancement opportunities.
We build Latinx-centered spaces that revolve around career advice, technical talks, mentorship, open jobs, networking events, speaking opportunities, and open-source and we work with both employee resource groups (ERGs) and tech companies to comprehensively affect change in the tech industry.
Coming from all walks of life, we believe that the diversity of our community is the most reliable asset we have. Our space aims to be inclusive so we invite Latinx from the regions of the Caribbean, Haiti, and Brazil as well as those who identify as Afro-Latinx, Asian-Latinx or LGBTQIA. The term Latinx is used instead of Latino or Latina because it is a gender-neutral and inclusive term.
