DACA Renewal – Volunteer Attorney Training
September 30, 2017 | United Way 3200 E Camelback Rd, Ste 375 Phoenix AZ 85018 | 12:00 - 1:30 PM
As you know, On September 5, 2017, the Trump Administration announced the elimination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which, since 2012, has provided protection against deportation and work authorization to nearly 800,000 young immigrants across the country. Though no new applications will be accepted, USCIS will continue to adjudicate renewal and work authorization applications until October 5, 2017 for those whose benefits expire on or before March 5, 2018. A coalition of local immigrants’ rights organizations are organizing a series of DACA Renewal Drives to help eligible DACA recipients renew their status before the October 5, 2017 deadline. We expect massive turnout – there are about 28,000 DACA recipients in Arizona. We need volunteer attorneys. The drives will take place on Saturday, September 16, 23, and 30. The exact times are TBD but they will be all day, and we’ll be signing volunteer up for shifts. If you are interested in volunteering for one or more shifts on any of these dates, please plan to attend a training session this Saturday: DACA Renewal – Volunteer Attorney Training September 9, 2017 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM United Way 3200 E Camelback Rd, Ste 375 Phoenix AZ 85018 RSVP to Josh Nunez - Josh@nunezfirm.com
