The Project

Courtnie served and advocated for unaccompanied minors seeking asylum in the United States.

Children who do not have legal representation or a means to employ legal representation in removal proceedings are screened to see if they qualify for free legal services. They are also referred to other resources and services they need to settle here in the United States (social services, medical resources, therapy, housing, etc.)
