New Sanctuary Coalition Immigration Clinic Volunteer Training

Event time: 
Sunday, October 4, 2020 - 1:00pm to 3:30pm
Event description: 
Sunday, Oct. 4th
1:00-3:30pm (via Zoom)
 
NSC runs a weekly remote clinic staffed by non-attorney volunteers and supervised by experienced immigrants rights organizers and immigration lawyers. The clinic helps people identify ways to get relief from deportation and detention; access other immigration-related benefits; understand their rights so they can fight their own case; apply for asylum; prepare for court appearances or interviews; and much more. Our main clinic takes place on Wednesday evenings 6:00pm-9:30pm.
 
We’re seeing tremendous growth in the number of immigrants — the people we call “Friends,” not clients — seeking help and we’re looking for new volunteers (while we especially need fluent Spanish speakers, all are welcome). This training will provide an introduction to New Sanctuary, an overview of pro se clinic policies and procedures, and specific information on volunteer roles.
