AI Justice is working closely with Catholic Charities Legal Services, AILA, CABA, FIU and UM to train attorneys willing to offer pro bono services to unaccompanied minors from Central America whose court cases have been “fast tracked.” Three trainings for attorneys in private practice were conducted in the past few months which will expand the availability of free legal services to vulnerable unaccompanied children facing removal.
AI Justice would like to thank Jones Day, Greenberg Traurig and White and Case for hosting these trainings.
On Friday, October 24, attorneys from the LUCHA team traveled to Naples, FL at the invitation of Project Help, a rape crisis center. Staff trained several victim advocates and the Collier County State Attorneys office on the particular needs of immigrant survivors as well as potential protections.
