Your help is needed at the pro bono Legal Advice Day clinic in February

Dear MNAPABA Members & Friends:

I am asking you to volunteer your services at our pro bono Legal Advice Day clinic on February 22 to help refugees and immigrants access much needed legal services. 

We are conducting this clinic at the Hmong American Partnership, which helps diverse people, including Hmong, Karen, Somali and Latino populations. With help from you and our colleagues at the Hmong American Bar Association and Volunteer Lawyers Network, I hope we can offer assistance to people who need it the most, especially during a time where there’s considerable uncertainty and fear in immigrant communities. Clients will be coming to the clinic seeking help in a variety of areas, including housing, immigration, small business issues, family law, criminal defense, general civil matters, etc. 

All volunteers are strongly encouraged to attend the training on February 14, where we will cover basic information about the populations you’ll be helping and the general clinic process. If you’re unable to attend in person, teleconferencing is available. The training will also be videotaped.

Your help is needed. Please sign up today.

Thank you,
Summra Shariff
