The Project

I work with the Immigration Legal Services Program at Catholic Charities, providing immigration legal services and outreach about domestic violence to African refugees and immigrants. During the first year of the fellowship, I provided legal advice and representation to clients from over 30 African countries; organized a workshop to empower survivors of domestic violence; conducted legal rights presentations in the African community; and began developing a pro bono panel of attorneys to serve other clients in need.
