Volunteer Attorneys and Translators Needed to Assist Immigrant Youth
The Legal Assistance Team of BJ’s Refugee and Immigration Committee is working with Safe Passage Project to provide pro bono representation for children under the age of 21 in immigration proceedings. Many of these children have fled life-threatening situations in their home countries, do not speak English, and are survivors of trauma.
Join us at 6:30PM for dinner, followed by a training for attorneys who are prepared to take a case, working alone or with a partner (training beings at 7:00PM).
In order to sign up for the attorney training:
- Email Susan Thal with the subject line “R.S.V.P.” AND
- Complete the form accessed via the “Contact Us” link on the Safe Passage website.
Safe Passage Project is also seeking non-attorney fluent Spanish-speakers for volunteer translation.
- Spanish language volunteers should also sign up through the “Contact Us” link on the Safe Passage website. Any volunteer who is eager to get started sooner should indicate that on their Safe Passage sign-up response.
