Legal Screenings for Immigrants in Arizona

Aliento is looking to inform and educate immigrants on their legal case, options, and possible reliefs that they might be eligible for.

Posted August 7, 2020

Background & Context

Aliento does DACA renewals on an ongoing basis. We have encountered several individuals who are eligible for other permanent forms of reliefs through our drives. Therefore, we think that many immigrants don't get legal screenings due to high cost as well as not knowing the potential benefits.

Immediate Problem

This project will provide legal counsel to a constituency that doesn't have the access or means to acquire without pro-bono legal screenings.

Work & Deliverables

We would like the lawyer to do be available for 10 to 20 legal screenings for immigrants.
