CAIR Coalition

November 3, 2009

After the Immigration Ready Bench gathering had ended, I spent the night in DC with friends and the next morning attended a training/orientation at an organization called CAIR Coalition.

Taken directly off of their website, a brief description of CAIR:

“CAIR Coalition brings together community groups, pro bono attorneys, volunteers and immigrants from the District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland working to ensure that all immigrants are treated with fairness, dignity and respect for their human and civil rights”.

As a CAIR volunteer I will be going on visits to immigration detention centers to assistant with “intake”. This all means that I will be available to meet with people and gather information about their situations, helping CAIR to assess whether or not this person may be eligible for any type of special visa or pro bono representation. I will keep you posted as I begin volunteering.
