URGENT – CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

As a follow up to last week’s statement regarding Trump’s Executive Order to Jail Families in Place of Separating Children From Their Parents we have two amazing opportunities for members to lend support for migrants affected by the administration’s policies.

1. There is an immediate need to support ACLU and ImmDef to represent immigrant detainees, including asylum seekers, who have been transferred from immigration detention centers to the federal prison in Victorville. Please see the attached for additional information and click here to download the volunteer form. If you have any questions, please contact Grace Lee, Director of Pro Bono Attorney Programs, at glee@aclusocal.org

2. The MABA Civil Rights and Immigration Committee urges all members to consider supporting The Florence Project This Arizona-based organization offers free legal services to men, women, and unaccompanied children in immigration custody. Donate here.
