My part at GAIN for the summer may be over, but the work is far from over.
Georgia Asylum and Immigration Network (GAIN)
Just because something isn't your reality doesn't mean it isn't someone's reality.
Working in a nonprofit is a great opportunity to play lots of different roles outside of "legal intern".
Intake calls are a weekly, if not daily, part of my job. The Legal Practice Program prepares us for the basics of client meetings, but working with survivors of trauma requires more than what is typically covered as a 1L.
GAIN is preparing to grow! How do we raise awareness about issues like human trafficking and domestic violence in areas all across Georgia?
This week, I wanted to discuss some of my recent findings in my research on the REAL ID Act.
With the help of lyrics from "Hamilton", I talk about one thing I love more than most: research.
When working with victims of violence, sometimes the work can be overwhelming.
This week, one person's "yes" started us down a path that could change someone's life.
This week, I met a young woman whose story shows the complications of an asylum case.
I'm proud to be spending the summer working at the Georgia Asylum and Immigration Network in Atlanta, Georgia, in the very community that inspired my interest in working in immigration law.
