The Project

Carolyn’s Fellowship will reach underserved immigrant and limited English proficient populations within Indiana by providing direct legal services and conducting outreach around the state. Carolyn’s fellowship will address many community needs including, providing direct representation to immigrant victims of crimes, including domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking, representing clients in immigration and administrative proceedings including applying for continued presence, U-Visas, and T-Visas, offering advice and referrals to immigrant clients in domestic violence cases, and connecting victims to social services and other assistance.

Carolyn’s experience and community service since law school have been a reflection of her goals to help vulnerable, low-income individuals. Practicing at non-profit organizations, her international background from studies abroad, and her passion for this type of work makes Carolyn the right person for this Fellowship. She is looking forward to the challenge and opportunity of the Crime Victims Justice Corps Fellowship.
