The Project

The goal of my project is to protect parental rights and to reduce the trauma for children whose parents are, without warning, taken away by immigration, detained and possibly deported. We will serve immigrant families in rural poor communities in the greater Sacramento region by helping parents understand their rights and legal options; help them develop plans for the care of their children in the event they are separated; and draft legal documents, (e.g. guardianship) for those parents who choose to leave their children in the U.S.
