Hello: we now have a new, improved sign-up sheet to volunteer at the migrant legal workshops. The new system will let you choose a specific date and indicate your language skills and whether you are an attorney.
The new site is here:
Beginning in November 2023, non-profit organizations will be organizing large-scale workshops to help thousands of Southwestern Border Migrants apply for employment authorization and Temporary Protected Status.
Volunteers are needed. Spanish or Haitian Creole bilingual skills are particularly helpful but not necessary.
Locations will vary but will likely be in downtown Chicago.
Volunteers should be prepared to spend 4-5 hours at each workshop. Shorter sessions may be possible.
This is ideal for student volunteers.
