More about the NSC Pro Se Clinic:

New Sanctuary Coalition runs a weekly clinic staffed by non-attorney volunteers and supervised by experienced immigrants rights organizers and immigration lawyers. You do not need prior experience to participate; we will train you. The clinic helps people identify ways to get relief from deportation and detention; access other immigration-related benefits; understand their rights so they can fight their own case; apply for asylum; prepare for court appearances or interviews; and much more. 

We're seeing tremendous growth in the number of immigrants  the people we call “friends,” not clients — seeking help and we're looking for new volunteers.
Clinic is on Tuesday evenings from 6-8:30 at NYU law school.
