The Project

Jessica’s project provides culturally competent, trauma-informed, holistic direct legal services to immigrants in New Mexico facing legal barriers due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The project will provide holistic representation to low-income immigrants living in New Mexico due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Fellowship Highlights

Jessica’s parents and husband are immigrants. She has watched them work hard to create a better world for their family. The immigration system in the US is complex, and when her husband became a permanent resident, they struggled tremendously to navigate the system. Jessica went to law school to become an immigration attorney to help guide people through the system.
