Giving Tuesday 2019: Barack Ferrazzano Matches NIJC In Support Of Asylum Seekers
Barack Ferrazzano was proud to partner with the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) for the 3rd consecutive year during its #GivingTuesday campaign. As part of NIJC’s #GivingTuesday campaign, the Firm matched donations made to NIJC, which NIJC puts towards translations, legal consultations for separated families, filing habeas petitions to free asylum seekers from jail, and advocating on behalf of asylum seekers in court. As a result of the funds gathered by NIJC and matched by the Firm on #GivingTuesday, NIJC was able to provide free legal representation for more than 20 asylum seekers.
