As part of our efforts related to President Obama’s executive action on immigration, we will be hosting pre-screening clinics in March and April along with the Missouri Immigrant and Refugee Advocates (MIRA) Immigrant Service Provider Network (ISPN). We need many volunteers in order to run these events, from helping with sign-in to reviewing documents and evidence with clients. We would love to have our supporters volunteer during these events so you can see first-hand the impact your support has in our communities!
We held the first clinics last weekend in Illinois, and they were a huge success. Our volunteers each got to speak with at least 2-3 individuals, working with them to determine eligibility and prepare paperwork. Legal volunteers were paired with those with no legal experience, and interpreters were provided for those who didn't speak Spanish.
The upcoming clinics will be held on:
- Sunday, March 22 at St. Charles Borromeo Church (St. Charles, MO)
- Sunday, April 12 at St. Cecilia Church (St. Louis, MO)
- Sunday, April 26 at Holy Trinity Church (St. Ann, MO)
These clinics will run 1:00pm-5:00pm, with a volunteer training at noon.
- Saturday March 28 at Fairmont City Community Center (Fairmont City, IL)
This clinic will run 3pm-7pm, with a volunteer training at 2pm.
