Harvard Law Students Coming to Chicago to Help CALA with DACA/DAPA workshops during their Spring Break
CALA is honored to be one of the four organizations hosting Harvard Law students as part of HLS' Spring Break Trips 2015. Sponsored by the law school's Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs, the trips provides opportunities for students to use their spring breaks to do important pro bono work in Chicago, Alabama, the Mississippi Delta, and South Texas. The trips run from March 14-22, 2015.
Students coming to Chicago will prepare, conduct outreach for, and deliver at least two legal assistance workshops for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) applications and renewals, along with Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) preparation in Little Village and South Chicago. Using CALA's community activism lawyering model, the students will collaborate with community activist organizations, including Enlace-Chicago and Centro de Trabajadores Unidos-Immigrant Workers Project. In addition, the students will be able to observe and explore community activism lawyering in action at CALA's clinics, in court, and at other community organizing activities.
