Thank you for your interest in putting your legal expertise into action to help child immigrants.

We are offering two ways for you to learn how you can help, and you may participate in either or both. They are:

  • A special policy briefing via phone hosted by the Federation’s Legal Division

    Wednesday, July 11, 2018
    6:00-6:30 PM
    Dial-in information will be provided with confirmation.
  • A session devoted to training attorneys to take on pro bono representation of undocumented minors. The session will prepare you for representing an undocumented minor in state probate court to obtain a legal guardian and secure specific findings regarding Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS), an important form of federal immigration relief for youth who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected by a parent.

    Monday, July 23, 2018
    7:00-9:00 PM
    The Jewish Federation Goldsmith Center, Sanders Boardroom
    6505 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles 90048
    Light dinner will be served.

For those of you who need to coordinate this project with your firm administrators and/or pro bono director, or if you have any other questions, please contact Amy Shpall at (323) 761-8158 or

We look forward to taking meaningful action — together.
