For the second year in a row the MICA Project has been honored by the Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund at their 2015 Spirit Awards. This year, the client-centered community organization received $20,000 to continue their work in providing legal, advocacy, and educational services for low-income migrant and immigrant populations.
Along with this award, MICA Project co-founders, Nicole Cortes and Jessica Mayo, both received scholarships to attend the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association (AILA) 2015 Annual Conference. According to the AILA site, the conference is “the largest annual gathering of the immigration law community” and “is the can’t-miss opportunity to stay up to date on the latest trends in immigration law”. From the description and listed opportunities for workshops and networking the conference promises to be an advantageous experience for all attendees.
