As an Equal Justice Works Fellow, I will be serving as the "Immigration Consultant" to Colorado's 64 departments of social and human services through the "Immigrant Child Welfare Project." In addition to providing direct, immigration-related legal representation to undocumented children and families involved in the State's child welfare system, I will create immigration-specific educational materials and assessment tool kits for county welfare departments' frontline caseworkers; I will also offer training and technical assistance to child welfare professionals.
