Pro Bono DACA Renewal Clinic
Sunday 10/01/2017 afternoon (specific time TBD)
Queens, NY (location TBD)

Calling all volunteers 

On Sept. 5, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the rescission and “winding down” of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provided temporary protection from deportation and employment authorization for close to 800,000 undocumented young immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. Renewal applications for eligible DACA recipients will only be accepted until Oct. 5, 2017. 

The AABANY Community Response Task Force and Immigration, Pro Bono, GSPI, and Issues committees are partnering with the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) and the New York Coalition for Asian American Mental Health to hold a one-day pro bono clinic that will assist DACA beneficiaries meet the Oct. 5, 2017 renewal deadline and provide mental health counseling

Attorneys of all practice areas are welcome to participate. We strongly encourage all participants in the clinic to listen in on the DACA Renewal Training Webinar on 9/19. If you cannot attend the webinar on 9/19 [http://www.aabany.org/events/event_details.asp?legacy=1&id=1014045#], it will be shared with you prior to the clinic.
