In the face of a feeling of devastation and helplessness after November 2016, it was essential for me to find a way to give back, and volunteer my legal skills in a substantial and meaningful way. A friend recommended that I reach out to KIND – and from the first contact they have been supportive, responsive, and thoughtful.
The four attorneys from my office who worked on this matter had no prior experience handling immigration matters, so KIND’s level of careful involvement and guidance has been key. My colleagues and I never felt like we are going it alone. Whether it is providing trainings in key areas of the law; arranging meeting space and translators; or providing resources for effectively communicating with victims of trauma – KIND staff have been there for us.
