Sanctuary at CBST: Pro Se Immigration Legal Clinic
Have you ever wished you could do something to help immigrants and asylum seekers - most of whom are not native English speakers - navigate the system? Now you can! CBST, in partnership with Seeking Asylum and Finding Empowerment (SAFE) and New Sanctuary Coalition (NSC), is launching its own weekly immigration clinic, part legal clinic and part pro se, which will focus on LGBTQ immigrants. Volunteers will assist people who are representing themselves (pro se, in legal terms) to complete asylum applications and find out what additional legal services are available to them.
If you have attended a clinic training, either at CBST or through New Sanctuary, or if you have immigration clinic experience, we invite you to join us. If you have not yet been to a clinic training, contact Rabbi Marisa James to find out about upcoming training sessions, and if you are a lawyer, contact Lee Jason Goldberg to find out about upcoming immigration CLEs: we need both lawyer and non-lawyer volunteers, especially Spanish speakers who can translate.
