Congratulations to Pro Bono Attorney Heather Poole from Stone Grzegorek & Gonzalez LLP for a win at the Board of Immigration Appeals!
Heather's client was detained at Adelanto Detention Center. After the Immigration Judge denied her client's claim, she appealed to the Board of Immigration where it was determined her client is eligible for asylum.
Pro Bono attorneys have the power to make a difference. Thank you, Heather! …

Hello!
My name is Alexandria Walters and I am with the Public Insight Network. We have recently published a query/questionnaire that deals with new bills that were introduced in California, one of which is about single-payer healthcare. If you could fill it out and share it with members of your organization we'd be very grateful.
Thank you!!

ATTN ATTORNEYS: Our organization provides community education and direct representation to individuals detained at Adelanto Detention Center. These individuals are severely disadvantaged by virtue of their confinement in a remote facility akin to prison. This training is intended to teach attorneys how to prepare for bond hearings. We will review the law, the process, and include lots of practical advice.

For folks who want to keep the social action going:
March Against Hateful Borders

March 18, 2017, 10:30am – March 18, 2017, 3:30pm

"An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." For this reason, we are letting our voice be heard in celebration of inclusivity and diversity through a march in Downtown Los Angeles. The march will go from Grand Park by City Hall and will proceed down Hill Street, make a right on 6th Street, and will end at the immigration court on Olive and 6th Street. We anticipate the following program:

10:30 – 11:00 am: Gather, play music, and get to know one another

11:00 – 11:30 am: Voter registration drive (assisting people to register via smart phones and written voter registration applications)

11:30 am – 12:30 pm: March approximately one mile to destination

12:30 pm – 1:30 pm: Performances, speeches and press conference

Of course plenty of time is given for more flexibility, no stress, only celebration of the diversity that makes us great.

Marcha Contra Fronteras de Odio

La marcha procedera de Grand Park cerca de City Hall en el Centro de Los Angeles, hacia la calle Hill St, hara una derecha y continuara hasta terminar en la corte de immigracion en las calles Olive St y 6th St.
