VECINA has a number of volunteer opportunities for both attorney and non-attorney volunteers.
VECINA’s ReUnite Project assists families and other sponsors seeking the release of unaccompanied immigrant children from government custody. We need volunteer attorneys, administrative support, and interpreters.
Afghan Affirmative Asylum
Thousands of Afghan nationals fled to the United States in search of safety. Our Afghan Affirmative Asylum Project helps Afghan asylum seekers apply for permanent status in the U.S. We need volunteer attorneys and administrative support.
*WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW VOLUNTEERS FOR THIS PROJECT.
Many asylum seekers appearing in Immigration Court find themselves unable to find legal help. Defensive asylum volunteers fight for their clients’ permission to stay. We need volunteer attorneys, administrative support, and interpreters.
