The Project

As an immigrant herself, Natali is passionate about helping other immigrants navigate the complex immigration legal system. Prior to her fellowship Natali worked as a solo practitioner representing individuals in various different immigration matters such as Asylum, VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) Petitions, Adjustment of Status, Consular Processing, U nonimmigrant visas, and Custody Redetermination Hearings, to name a few.

In her fellowship she focuses on representing immigrant survivors of severe forms of trafficking. Many of the individual she serves have very heavy stories to tell – Natali hopes that through her representation she will not only help survivors obtain legal status but also bring some hope and a ray of light into their lives.

Fellowship Plans

In her fellowship Natali plans to educate community members about the many resources that exist for survivors of trafficking. She hopes to do this by building partnerships with the many organizations that serve survivors of trafficking and then presenting these resources to the trafficking survivors. Additionally, many immigrant survivors of trafficking may not know that they may be eligible for immigration benefits, as such Natali hopes to educate community members about the immigration benefits that are available for survivors of trafficking.
